If you've recently acquired a dog or puppy you may be concerned about how to train him. An obedient dog is truly a joy to have around. A dog that obeys his master's commands is easier to be friends with. Your time together will be playful and fun. On the other hand, a dog that is allowed to misbehave will leave you frustrated and exhausted.

A dog that has not received obedience training will become a problem dog. Your household will be in chaos as he rules the roost. He may tear up your furniture, make messes on the floor, or snap food out of your hand instead of taking it gently. You might begin to receive complaints from neighbors about your dog's misadventures. At the worst he may become aggressive and bite the hand that feeds him.

Whether you own a dog to have as a pet or as protection it's imperative that he receive obedience training from the beginning. There are classes and books available to help you learn to train your dog. Obedience training classes are often held at the larger pet stores. You can also ask your veterinarian to make some recommendations about classes or coaches in your area.

so true! It is such a relief to know that I can go on a walk and know my puppy will come when I call her. We just adopted a lab a week ago and have already started her traning process so that she knows who we are, what we expect of her, and the rules of the house :)
