Deciding whether or not to train your dog is a question that many pet owners ask themselves. Whether you have an old or a new puppy, training is a great tool to make your dog better behaved. Training is essential for many reasons, and we will talk about those here!
To keep them safe
Training can help keep your furry best friend safe in unknown situations. If they have been trained to sit, come, etc., they will respond when it matters most. If you are playing in the yard and your dog starts to run towards the street, the commands to stay or sit could save them from being hit by a car.
Training can strengthen your relationship
Spending the time to train and work with your dog can help you understand each other and your pup’s motivations. It can bring you closer together as you work as a team. If your dog is better behaved, it will also be easier to take them on fun trips and outings!
If your dog has been trained, it can help them feel comfortable in new or stressful situations. It can help them greet people properly instead of being scared or overly excited and jumping all over your visitors.
