Dog Training Classes

Want A Better Relationship - With Your Pet?


Not every dog owner sees the need for dog training Not every dog owner sees the need for dog training classes. Some have a lot of experience with pets. They have an understanding of basic dog training and they don’t want or realize they can have more than that.

Each dog has an unlimited learning potential and the more they learn the happier they can be. The right training classes will help your dog meet their full potential and lead to a better relationship between you and your dog.

So what happens when you don’t get training classes for your dog? Everything will probably seem OK. Especially if you have had pets before, you will probably know enough to teach your dog basic obedience and a few tricks.

However, it is what you don’t notice that can mean you do not have the best possible relationship with your dog. When your dog does not reach its full potential, you may start to make compromises or excuses for certain behaviours.

For example, maybe you love it when you come home and your dog jumps up to greet and lick you, but when he or she does the same to visitors, you try to use some discipline and explain that your dog is just happy to see them. While they might politely smile, most people, even close family and friends, probably don’t like it when your dog jumps on them.

Your dog has the potential to know that they can jump up on you, but not on visitors. It might seem like a small point, but it can have major benefits.

Imagine you enroll your dog in a training class and your dog learns to jump up only on you and not visitors. Now, every time someone comes over, you will have a stronger sense of pride in your dog’s behaviour, and your dog will feel more confident and happy that they have pleased you.

Just one small change in behaviour and you have a better relationship with your dog. Now imagine how much better the relationship will be with everything else you and your dog learn from a training class.

But, not all dog training classes are created equal, and you and your dog might have particular needs that may be better met by one class and not another. So how do you know which training class will work best for you and your dog?

You need to determine exactly what you want from a class. Puppies need to be taught differently to fully-grown dogs. If your dog has behavioural or obedience problems, you will need a class that corrects the bad behaviour and replaces it with good behaviour.

Next, you need to find the right class for your needs. Talk to your veterinarian or family and friends with dogs who have been to training classes. The internet is also a good source of information. You may even want to look in on some classes to get a better fell for whether or not it is a good fit for you and your dog.

It may be a bit of work, it will pay off when you start having a better relationship with your dog than you thought possible.
