5 GREAT REASONS TO TRAIN YOUR DOG

1. A trained dog is a happy dog!

Training stimulates a dog’s brain and burns mental energy by thinking. A mentally stimulated dog is less likely to exhibit problem behaviors like chewing and nuisance barking. Trained dogs are generally happier because they know what their owners expect from them and are able to understand what their owners are asking.

2. A trained dog can be a social dog!

Even if your dog only knows the basics – sit, down, stay, leash walking – it’s more likely he’ll be welcome in social situations. A dog with good manners can join in the fun when company comes, go on outings and enjoy social activities as a member of the family.

3. Training helps your bond with your dog.

Positive, reward-based training can strengthen your relationship with your dog. Using positive reinforcement teaches your dog to trust that you have their best interests in mind. What is more fun than playing with your dog while they learn a new skill?

4. Your dog actually listens to you!

A well-trained dog knows that what you say matters. Positive reinforcement training encourages your dog to want to listen to you and helps them to understand what you expect from them.
