The Importance of Training a Dog

Obedience training is critical when it comes to nurturing a healthy human-animal relationship and creating a socially compatible pet. The basic elements - sit, down, stay, come, and heel - help produce a good canine. In a practical sense, obedience-trained dogs have an easier life, and are easier to live with than their untrained peers. If dogs don't jump up on strangers and sit or lie quietly when asked and walk politely on lead, they're bound to spend more time with their owners going to picnics, ballparks, and other public places, and will spend less time alone at home.

Dogs taught to lie down on the arrival of vistor are more likely to be included in the dinner party and less likely to wind up isolated in the garage or basement. Obedience training is an education in good manners, that almost literally opens many doors for otherwise confined dogs. Rather than thinking of obedience training as a series of pointless rituals, think of it as a tool to help dogs cope in the real world.
