Many people think of training as basic commands like “sit,” or “walk,” but in reality, training involves so much more. In today’s blog, we will discuss why training is so important for your pup. Once you finish reading, be sure to contact ACDT or check out our classes online.

Strengthens The Bond

When it comes to the bond between you and your pup, there is always room for improvement. While playing and watching TV together provides you with a solid relationship, training can provide you with a way to make the trust you have with your dog even stronger.

Through the training process, you and your dog will work together. Your pup will start to see you as the leader, and as he or she works hard to impress you, you will start to see improvement. As a result, your dog will begin to trust you and you will be able to trust that if you give a command, your dog will obey.

It Could Save His or Her Life

You want to spend as much time as possible with your pooch, and that may include going for walks around town. If you live in a busy area, knowing the commands “sit” or “stay” will come in handy when you’re waiting to cross the street. Even if you’re just hanging out at home, and you see your dog reaching for a piece of chocolate that fell on the floor, teaching your dog to “leave it” could prevent your dog from eating something he or she shouldn’t. Training may seem like a tedious task, but it can give you peace of mind in knowing that your pet will listen to each command that you give.

More Freedom

How many times have you been to a friend’s house for a party and they have to keep their dog in a kennel, because otherwise he or she will misbehave? When you properly train your pup, you won’t have to worry about how he or she will react around strangers. Dogs aim to please, and providing them with proper training gives them a sort of job to do. They know that if they act according to their training, they will be rewarded, and as a result, your pup is more likely to behave. Because your dog knows how to behave around crowds, on the street, or even in the park, you won’t have to worry as much and you can provide your pup with more freedom.

These are just a few reasons why proper training for your dog is important. If you’re ready to start training, ACDT can help! We offer a variety of dog training classes to suit your pup’s needs.
