Keep us in mind when your shopping at your favorite Chow Hound Store. Buy your dog a treat and share…
A well-behaved companion canine is a joy. But left untrained, your dog can cause nothing but trouble. Teaching your dog the basics—"Sit," "Stay," "Come," "Down," "Heel," "Off" and "Leave it"—will improve your relationship with both your dog and your neighbors. If you have a puppy, start teaching him his manners as soon as possible! Use little bits of food as a lure and reward. Puppies can be enrolled in obedience courses when they have been adequately vaccinated. Contact your local humane society or SPCA for training class recommendations.
You should always keep your puppy or dog on a leash in public. Just be sure your pet will come to you at all times whenever you say the word. A dog who is disobedient or aggressive is not ready to play with others.
It is so critical to have some semblance of training with your dog so they can have a well balanced life. It makes it so much easier to socialize your dog, have company over and to enjoy your dog. If one doesn’t train the dog than often times the dog develops issues with behavior. Jumpiness, disruptive behavior, mouthiness and even aggression.
