Bonding with your pet is crucial to having a good relationship, and training is a great way to achieve a strong bond with your dog. When you can trust your pet and vice versa, stressful situations are much easier to navigate. Dogs are pack animals, and obedience training helps them understand where they fall in the pack and who to look to for guidance – making your bond that much stronger.
Better control of commands
When training your dog, keep in mind that obedience training is the first step to future behavior modifications. This means it’s really important for your pup to master basic obedience skills. Once your dog has basic skills mastered, you as the owner have more control over your pet and their future training potential.
How do you begin the journey into basic obedience? Consistent training and reinforcement. Practicing and repeating basic commands will support understanding and help define expectations. Furthermore, the spectrum of basic obedience commands is wide. Start by identifying the best commands for your dog and your shared lifestyle. Ask yourself, what’s the most important commands we need to employ? Whether leash training, potty training, socializing or beyond, starting with a clear, consistent plan is integral to success.
Dogs that are well trained are better equipped to handle unexpected situations. If your dog knows when to sit, stay and heel, they will be better prepared to listen, and they will look to you for guidance in most situations since you are the pack leader. Basic obedience is crucial to the safety of your pet and those around him (furry friends and humans alike).
