Obedience Training Builds Self-Control

dog-obedience-training-NJ-LevineWhile Obedience Training may on the surface seem basic or even entertaining, it serves an important purpose in the world of dog education. Teaching your dog good manners and basic commandsand to crave your positive attentionforms the basis for self-control.

Self-control translates into a psychologically balanced, happy dog that has a clear understanding of boundaries and what is expected of them as a member of our family. A dog whose self-control is anchored with basic commands is also much less likely to develop anxiety-related issues like guarding or separation anxiety down the road.

Successful Basic Obedience Training Prevents More Complex Problems in the Future

Come, wait and stay can also mean the difference between life and death. Dogs who know these commands are not likely to dash out the door and into traffic. An educated dog will also make for a much more enjoyable family member, one who won’t charge the front door or jump on your guests.

The earlier you start basic obedience training the better. It is much easier to train a dog properly early on than it is to correct behavioral issues down the road.
