It is common knowledge that training a dog results in a lot of advantages, but not everyone is willing to put in the time and effort necessary. Although many start with great intentions, often we notice people find it difficult to stick through.
Both when visiting a pet as when taking a trip together with your dog, it is nice when your dog knows how to behave. This is especially true when your dog might be getting in a dangerous situation. At moments like these, you can take profit from earlier training sessions.
Though most of the time it is easier to start at a young age, it’s never too late to train your dog.
One of the most important advantages of having a well trained dog is having the ability to get him out of a dangerous situation. Thanks to great training, you can recall your dog when, for example, he’s running close to a street or heading for an unknown dog. Another example is having your dog release items when you ask him to. You never know what dangerous stuff he could pick up.
A calm and peaceful home
By training your dog, you can make sure he remains calm at home. By making it clear to him what he can and can’t do inside, you’ll create a pleasant environment where you are in control. Make clear rules and remain consistent with these rules to make sure your dog knows what you expect of him.
Most dog owners would like bringing along their dog whenever they make a trip. The truth, however, is that most dog owners are afraid to do so because they don’t trust their dog. By training your dog, these trips will become way more enjoyable. Once your dog gets the hang of how to behave on a walk or at a bar, you’ll have the ability to keep enjoying these moments.
The ‘recall’ is in my opinion the most important command you can teach your dog. The number 1 reason for this is that it can save him in dangerous situations. On a daily basis, dogs run off and their owners are unable to call them back. This sometimes then results in a dangerous chase around the neighbourhood. It is important to control your dog for the safety of you, the dog itself and other people, dogs and other animals.
