Training is the best investment you can make in your relationship with your dog. But first you need to learn to communicate your desires in a way that your dog will understand.

All dogs benefit from training. It goes beyond learning tricks that will impress your friends. Training will help your dog stay safe in a variety of situations, from being in the yard to being monitored in an emergency.

The mental training your dog gets can help him stay sharp, burn energy, and even reduce unwanted behaviors. Be consistent and patient, reward your dog for getting it right, and remember, you can train a dog of any age.

No matter what you are trying to teach your dog, from house training to “heel”, there are a few basic guidelines to make the process easier for you.
