Does your dog need training?
February is Dog Training Education Month and whether you use a professional dog trainer or choose to work with your own dog, it is important to start training as soon as possible.
We all need structure, and our dogs are certainly no exception. A well-mannered pooch is a pleasure to be around. Conversely, there are those who know no boundaries or social decorum. So, how do you get your dog to behave nicely?
Braxton’s has a list of well-known, local dog trainers whom we are comfortable recommending. They can assist your dog in learning the behaviors that help them integrate into family life.
If a dog trainer is not an option for you, no problem. There are plenty of internet-based videos and information to help in this area. The Spruce Pets offers helpful tips and videos to aid with dog training.
A dog who is socialized and walks on a leash, sits, lies down, takes a treat nicely, doesn’t bark, will be a dog who is likely to stay in his forever home.
