National Train Your Dog Month!
Whenever we think about dog ownership we think about all the TRAINING that goes along with it. That is the ONE thing most people are deterred from with pet ownership, but it is so important to have a trained pet as it will make or break your relationship with them.
Here are a few reasons why you SHOULD put the time and effort into basic training:
- Your dog does what you want. Trained dogs generally have good manners and are easier to be around (AKA, they won’t be jumping into your face or peeing on your couch)
- Training provides mental and physical stimulation, which is very important for a dog’s wellbeing. A bored dog is an unhappy dog, which can lead to them taking their pent up energy out on things like chewing your favourite pair of shoes.
- Training is an excellent bonding activity between pet owner and pet. It builds respect and trust.
- Training teaches your dog to understand when you’re happy with them and when you’re not. This is SO important as it makes day to day life easier and communication a breeze.
