The Importance of Puppy Training
A trained dog is a happy dog. Not only will training give your pup a purpose and a task, it also lets your dog do the one thing he or she wants to do most: make you happy. Most dogs thrive on pleasing their humans, and training gives them the perfect opportunity to do this.
There are a lot of benefits to puppy training, including:
- Safety – the most important aspect of training your puppy is safety. Not only is a trained dog safer when walking on a leash and around other dogs, he or she can be much safer in their environment as well. For instance, if your puppy got loose in the yard and was about to run across a busy street, being able to yell “No! Sit!” and have your doggy’s butt hit the ground could be life-saving.
- Purpose – most dogs want a fulfilling and rewarding job or task to perform, and training is a great opportunity to provide this. It gives both you and your dog something to work on together.
- Quality of life – not only is your dog happier when he or she is making you happy, having a task and confidence in his or her environment can greatly improve your pet’s quality of life.
