Dog Obedience Training: The Options For Man’s Best Friend
They are man’s best friend, but what can you do when you have a dog, you love it, but it just won’t stop chewing on your best shoes, or polishing its nails on your precious sofa?
We train them to become, not only more sociable, but also a reliable company. This can be done by taking your dog to a professional dog-trainer, or simply at home, following instructions from books. Since the first option requires time to take the dog to a trainer, to go check on it, and take it back home, most people choose to house-train their pets. However, the second option has many disadvantages, since you are not a professional, and you do not have experience. Many even think, that after the dog/cat learned where “to go out”, the training is over. You could not be more wrong.
There is a third way, a new one, but as efficient as taking your dog to a trainer, but less time consuming. On-line training. Don’t think of putting your dog in front of a PC and let it learn from there. Through on-line training I mean visiting sites specialising on dog training.
However, you may choose to train your dog, bear in mind one thing: an untrained dog can be more of a nuisance than a friend. So, please, help your dog help you.
