If you were asked how your experience at dog ownership is going, where onthis word spectrum would be your response? Well, if its anything less than fantastic, please readthis article in its entirety.Nothing I can think of has the same potential to make such a tremendous contribution to thequality of your life than opening your home to a dog or puppy. And, nothing has the potential tomake your life completely as miserable than opening your home to a dog or puppy.What makes the difference between the first experience and the second? TRAINING! Everyexperienced dog owner will tell you that training your dog in obedience and socialization is theabsolute best gift you can give your dog, your family and you.A properly trained dog will provide you with unconditional love, countless hours of enjoyment, andgenuine, devoted friendship. While an untrained, non-sociable dog can wreak havoc in anotherwise stable, happy home.The most frequent excuse Ive heard why dog owners dont train their dogs is lack of time. Sure,were all time-deprived, but the hours you devote to training your dog will come back to you ten-fold in wonderful experiences, fun times, and the benefits that come from having a trulyappreciative friend and companion who will stick by you in good times and bad.The Benefits of Dog TrainingItll help you establish a lifetime relationship with your dogWhen you decided to become a dog owner, you took on a responsibility to provide for your dogand make his life the happiest it can be. And, since the most important mission in a dogs life is toplease his owner, obedience training will help your dog achieve his lifelong mission.Whether or not you are aware of it, training begins the moment you bring your dog into your home.Your dog will observe everything you do. How you react to his actions, how you interact with theothers in the household. Eventually he will look to you for guidance. He wants only to please. Yourlifelong mission should be to help him. Hell very quickly depend on you for food, shelter, andcompanionship.While there are many very qualified trainers to help you train your dog, I believe with a passion
  • 2. that you would truly be missing out on such a wonderful experience if you didnt take the task oftraining your dog on yourself. Many resources are readily available that will help you train yourselfto train your dog. And, when you consider the fact that dog training is a lifelong process thatcontinually strengthens the bond between dog and master, it only makes sense that you providethat training.As you and your dog train together, your bond grows stronger, your relationship becomes closerand an attachment will be established that youll feel just by being with your dog. Your dog likewisewill learn so much about you hell be able to know what is expected of him, just from yourgestures, your facial expressions, your tone of voice.And dont think it will all be work. Youll find it to be an enjoyable experience. Especially when youmove from obedience training to trick training (if you decide to take it to that level). Trick trainingcan be fun. Youll find yourself laughing a lot. And that can only be good for you, for your dog andfor your deepening relationship.It will correct behavioral problemsLets face it, gone unchecked, a dog can be a furry bundle of bad behaviors. Barking, chewing,digging, running away, jumping up, growling, or even worse, biting, are behaviors no responsibledog owner should tolerate. And basic obedience training- the sit, stay, come, down, heelcommands-- will go a long way to correcting the vast majority of those anti-socialbehaviors. A trained dog will be a joy to you, your family, and even strangers. Your dog will bewelcomed in more places which will further strengthen his social skills.Another advantage to conducting the training yourself is that training should continue throughoutyour dogs life. Learning keeps your dogs mind vibrant, focused, and active. The alternative isboredom, which fosters bad behavior.Many of your dogs bad behavior problems are actually normal canine activities that happen tooccur at the wrong time, or the wrong place, or directed at the wrong thing. Without training, yourdog will soil your carpets rather than eliminate outside; hell chew your furniture instead of his toy;hell bark at nothing all night instead of just at the intruder. With proper training you will teach yourdog to perform his natural behaviors at the right time, place and in the proper doses.It will stimulate your dogs intellectDogs are by nature very curious. They love to investigate. Smells, sights and sounds all becomethe subject of investigation. This attribute will help contribute to the success of your obediencetraining. The other attribute is the capacity for your dog to exhibit exceptional intelligence. But,before a dog has the ambition to learn he needs stimulation. If not a sound, sight or smell, then itcan be you providing a challenge with obedience training. Your dog will become smarter, and as aresult learn more and learn quicker as your lifelong training progresses.It will encourage inclusionEven though you will be the primary trainer, you need to involve the entire family in the process.This promotes inclusion which contributes to the feeling of security for your dog. Hell feel very

This is all quality time that furtherstrengthens bond between dog and owner.It saves timeProper training that begins on day one will avoid so much future aggravation as well as the timeyou will spend disciplining your dog, cleaning up the messes he makes, straightening out troublehe may cause neighbors, repairing the holes in your yard, or arranging boarding instead of simplyputting him in the car for the weekend trip. Yes, dog training will eventually prove to be a short cutto a very happy experience.Training your dog is simply the right thing to do. All involved benefit greatly and directly--you, your dog, your family, your neighbors, and strangers whose path crosses your dogs.As I mentioned above, I recommend that you afford yourself the opportunity to provide the trainingyourself. And, I also recommend below an excellent resource that will help you accomplish justthat. Best of luck.Make the experience of adopting an older dog -- or even a pup -- a positive one for you and yourdog. Begin training your new family member immediately.
