Why teach our dogs Basic Obedience?

The main reasons dogs are surrendered and then euthanized at animal shelters are behavior related.  However, this is not the dog’s fault.  Doing nothing about bad behavior only encourages the bad behavior.  As owners, it is our responsibility to teach our dogs what is expected of them.  We believe the key to a well trained dog is to enroll them in a Basic Obedience program.  Basic Obedience is the foundation to having a clear communication with your dog.  The benefits of Basic Obedience training includes:

  • Teaching the dog their role in the pack. Dogs either lead or follow.  If they lead, they will do whatever they want and therefore, become disobedient.  We want them to follow us.
  • Keeping our dog under control, which means you can do more activities with your dog. More and more places are allowing dogs to accompany their owners.  However, they must be learn to be in control.
  • Learning how to stop unwanted behaviors such as jumping and aggression and encourage wanted behaviors.
  • Creating a mental workout/stimulation for your dog.

Providing your dog with Basic Obedience training is the best gift you can give yourself and your and your dog.   It is the cornerstone to advanced training and ultimately, builds a better relationship between you and your dog.
