The Importance of Puppy Obedience Training


As a society, we are completely in love with our dogs. We spend millions of dollars every year on our beloved canine family members to feed, pamper, and provide the best care possible. However we may not be the best at training our pets, especially if our first instinct is to spoil the adorable puppies that we bring home. To keep your pet happy, you need to provide more than just proper care, you also need to provide proper obedience training. If you don't have the experience to do it yourself, formal puppy obedience training may be the answer.


Why is puppy obedience training important?
It gives your new puppy the opportunity to learn valuable socialization skills in a structured setting. Just like babies, puppies are little sponges that soak up everything they see and hear. This is the time to put that malleable and eager puppy into a professional setting so that you can start to socialize your puppy properly. While you can try do this on your own, puppy obedience training provides the perfect environment for little canines to get to know each other in a carefully supervised setting. With this your dog is taught to greet other dogs not with anger, aggression or suspicion, but interest, eagerness, and joy.


It'll help you teach your puppy the right training
Dogs have particular behaviors that are normal, but that their owners generally don't appreciate. Chewing, marking their territory, and running throughout the home are just a few of these habits. The key to manage these behaviours is to understand how your puppy thinks and then train him or her in a way that actually works. When you can do that, you can train your dog to be obedient without punishing what is only a normal behavior. For many unwanted behaviours the key is not to stop them, but to simply find alternative outlets for natural behaviours like chewing that actually need to happen. Puppy obedience classes can provide the structure and techniques to help you do that.

It's also worth noting that it can be difficult to break destructive habits or improper training techniques once your puppy has grown up; this makes puppy obedience training even more important.



It'll give your puppy good manners

Everybody wants a well behaved dog, but how do you get that to happen? The structure of a formal obedience class establishes foundations for good behavior right from the start and then builds on them in a way your puppy can understand.


It teaches you
You want a happy and healthy puppy that will grow up to become a valued member of your family for years to come. If that is going happen you must be an owner who can provide the proper discipline in exactly the right way.


Puppy obedience training classes don't just teach your puppy how to behave; they teach you how to behave with your puppy. They give you the ability to be a loving owner that can also provide proper boundaries, command respect, and communicate and interact with your puppy so that he or she becomes a well behaved, happy, loyal and forever family member.
