Dog training reinforces the bond between dog and owner, even with a well-trained dog
Your dog is such a sweetheart and so well behaved. When friends come over, she does her tricks: sit, stay, lay down and roll over. Your friends love it. And she responds by wagging her tail in appreciation, and in hopes for a treat.
With a dog such as that, the last thing you need consider is dog training classes, right? Well, if that’s as far as you want to go, sure. But, you may want to consider additional training that will take advantage of the potential your dog has already displayed.
Dog training, such as the classes offered at Aldens Kennels, 6810 Barnard Mill Road, Ringwood, include puppy, beginner, intermediate and advanced levels. Your dog may be ready for the intermediate or the advanced level; of the expert certified dog trainers at Aldens can help you determine what level is best for your dog.
Of course, you’re asking yourself, “Why should I considering taking such a well-behaved dog for additional dog training?”
Living with a well-trained dog is an entirely different lifestyle compared to living with an untrained dog. While there is some effort required to train a dog it’s far less than the amount of work needed to live with a dog that is running amok. The better trained the dog, the easier he or she is to live with. But, there’s another reason to continue training a dog beyond the basics.
Not only does more training improve life for the owner of the dog, it also improves life for the dog. A well-trained dog has a strong sense of security. It’s seldom a nervous dog nor does it suffer from the unreasonable bouts of fear that many untrained dogs battle on a daily basis. A well-trained dog is also more likely to represent a potential asset in an emergency or, at least, less of a deficit. But, there’s even another good reason to extend training with your dog.
Dog training is a fun activity for dogs and owners alike. Often, both come to look forward to training sessions with eager anticipation. And, in the process, they develop an ever stronger bond. People generally bring dogs into their families because of the potential bond that will grow between owners and their pets. As they say, dogs are “man’s best friend.”
Extending dog training reinforces and increases the depth of that friendship. A well-trained dog is a life-long friend you can count on.
