Dog and puppy training
A dogs first language is body language, it's how they read the world around them. A humans first language is vocal, we know what we're saying but dogs speak a different language and struggle to understand our communications. We often assume our dogs understand our words and become frustrated when they appear not to listen. Learn how to communicate with your dog to avoid confusion.
Why train a dog?
Dogs need to understand what is being asked of them. They need to be taught the meaning of words. If a dog doesn't listen to you it's usually because there is a communication problem.
Basic obedience is very important in a dogs life, it provides stability and understanding between dog and owner and helps improve the dog/human relationship.
The key to good training is time, patience, repetition and consistency. Using positive rewards a dog will learn quickly but you don't need to stand there with a treat in your hand to teach your dog. Just changing your behaviour pattern around your dog can immediately change your dogs behaviour.
Whether you have a puppy, a rescue dog, an older dog, one dog or ten dogs in the house, they all need guidance and training. THE BEST PLACE TO START YOUR TRAINING IS AT HOME.
