The more training your dog has, the more freedom he or she will have.
And freedom brings more walks, parks, beaches, and many fun adventures.
Group training is great for puppies! There are so many available classes. Information can be obtained from pet stores such as Petco, boarding facilities, groomers, and veterinary clinics.
Training brochures and tips are everywhere!
San Diego has many great trainers to choose from. Or check with your veterinarian to find someone in your area.
There are also many methods and tips online, like the video we found by trainer Zak George.
You will find there are several methods of training. I believe group training is also great for socializing.
Whatever method you choose, the one thing they have in common is you. You must stick with it, if you don’t , they won’t.
And always remember training doesn’t happen overnight, it’s something that takes time. Don’t be discouraged, every dog wants to please, they just need a little guidance and a lot of patience.
One very important lesson for your dog would have to be… Don’t run from an open door.
Teaching your pet not to run from an open door is a trick that could save their life.
Most dogs hit by cars run from open doors. Always teach your dog not to run from your home or car as you come and go, or take precautions to keep your pet safe with safety gates or outdoor pens.
Make teaching your dog not to run from an open door one of your first and most important tricks.
Always seek guidance from a trainer and be cautious when other animals are in the area.
Don’t let the excitement to go outside be opening the door, let it be you inviting them out.
