Dog training 101
This article briefly introduces dog training including success factors and the commands covered in typical canine good citizen courses.
Training dogs is a fundamental concept when having dog. Simply put, the main purpose is to instil dog obedience and to establish yourself as the pack leader. This is also a good time to bond with the dog as training can be fun.
When can dogs be trained? Puppies have short attention spans and hence most training centres have a minimum of 3 to 6 months for formal training. Note while dogs can still learn new tricks when they can older it gets more challenging to send them for obedience training when they are a few years old and set in their ways.
You can send your dogs for training at dog training centres or you could train them yourself. If you are experienced with dogs or was involved training another dog with a third party then you should be able to train this dog on your own.
