Why Should You Train Your Dog?
Tuesday, February 2, 2016
Training your dog is not just about teaching dogs’ obedience – it’s about helping them to adjust to living in a domestic, home environment and adapting to new situations. Dogs that are trained using positive reinforcement methods are more tolerant and self-controlled and are able to behave much more predictably in different social situations.
Training dogs helps to build a strong, positive relationship with them – you learn how to understand your dog and the way it thinks. Training uses positive reinforcement methods that create channels of communication between you and your dog that promotes security and comfort. When learning new exercises and having a good time, you are naturally strengthening the bond between you and your dog. It also makes for a friendlier pup – teaching them basic obedience skills and impulse control helps to provide mental stimulation and to control anxiety.
Training should be interactive and fun for the whole family and with the help of a professional Pasadena Dog Trainer you should be on the path to creating a healthier, happier living environment for both you and your pet.
