January is National Train Your Dog Month

Benefits of Training Your Dog


The benefits of having a trained dog are nearly limitless! From the moment you get your new puppy or dog, here’s a run-down of just some of the advantages:

Puppy socialization has been found to be critical to the psychological health of adult dogs. Puppy classes provide the opportunity for this important facet of your puppy’s upbringing.

Training classes provide dog owners the skills and knowledge for dealing with common, normal dog behaviors— starting with puppy behaviors such as potty training and chewing.

Training provides dogs with the basic good manners we all want—from polite greetings when guests arrive, to walking nicely on the leash, to coming when called.

A trained dog joins in the fun when company comes, accompanies the family to the kids’ sports games, goes with you to visit friends and relatives, goes for hikes, swims, and everything else the family does together.

Having a trained dog is a joy for both you and your dog!
