Is it important to train my dog?

Training is an important part of any dog's life and is important for several reasons.

  • It provides mental stimulation which helps to keep your dog happy, and if combined with morning exercise, your dog will be mentally and physically tired and far more likely to nap during the day.

  • Training will help build the bond between you and your dog.

  • Start training your puppy/dog as early as possible. It’s best to start at an early age because it is much easier to establish consistent rules from the beginning than to go back and try to retrain an undesirable habit the dog has developed. Once a behavior has developed, training may take longer.

  • Dogs that are shy will become less fearful around other animals and people after training.

  • Training makes it possible to take your dog into public areas for socializing; which is very important for your dog’s mental health and well-being.
