Ensuring your dog is properly trained will prevent behavior-based problems, both within a family environment as well as with neighbors and friends. An obedient dog is always a source of reassurance.

Training your dog also enables them to lead a fuller and happier life, as they are noble animals who love to be treated with affection and suffer when they are unable to comprehend which of their instinctive behaviors is the one that you dislike.

The basis of canine training is properly understanding a dog’s nature and clearly distinguishing which canine behaviors are authorized or unacceptable.

Training begins once your canine friend instinctively learns to behave as per your standards, in exchange of praise and rewards. However, identifying acceptable behaviors on their own does not constitute an easy task. The most successful methods of canine education focus on using techniques that enable dogs of any age to learn. Any owner can educate a pet by applying basic training techniques. Click To Tweet

Dog training is based on studies on animal behavior, the human-canine bond, and the latest developments in the field of canine psychology.By rewarding good behavior, modern canine education does not tolerate any type of mistreatment. Click To Tweet

What type of training does my dog need?

You will find many different types of training to select from, depending on the desired goal, i.e. the task that you want your dog to perform.

Dogs have helped us achieve numerous objectives throughout history. Whether as rescuers, guards, shepherds or pets, dogs have demonstrated learning and working abilities for many different fields of work, which include:

Even if your dog receives in-class training, real training success stems from practicing at home. Click To Tweet
