Benefits of Training your Dog:

1. It is safer for your pup; a dog who listens to commands can keep him/her safe in public and avoid unpleasant encounters

2. It is safer for your home; dogs who are well trained will treat your home and guests with manners & respect

3. Builds a lasting relationship for you & your dog; training will establish a connection between you and your pup. As you spend time together, creating boundaries, sharing experiences and learning to understand each other, a mutual respect will develop. Your dog will learn to trust and respect your judgment, and you’ll gain admiration for their potential and capabilities.

4. Creates easier means of socialization or public encounters; building your dogs confidence around humans and its fellow dogs, walks together will be an enjoyable experience and your dog will learn to interact safely and effectively with others.

5. Vet appointments can be more productive; Pet owners who take the time to desensitize their dog to being touched or worked on can reduce the risk overgrown nails, dental disease, untreated wounds or infections and the progression of disease which likely could have been prevented if discovered early.
