Dog training

Dogs are often referred to as man's best friend because they're loyal and intelligent. Dogs love being trained; being obedient and working together with humans comes naturally to them. That's why, with a little bit of know-how, training dogs and learning tricks can be easy and rewarding.

 


Most owners attempt to toilet train their dogs as young as possible. But if you've picked up a shelter or a mature aged dog, they may need to learn your house rules like a puppy. Also, when you move to a new location the dog may be confused by its new surroundings and unsure of what is acceptable.


 

The important thing to remember is to have patience. Read the following section; to be sure you're on the right track to having a well-trained dog who knows basic commands.
