Below are three more reasons why you should train your dog:.

  1. Becoming Fido’s Leader: Training reinforces the bond between dog and owner. It builds understanding, communication, and mutual respect, and effectively shows Fido that you’re the pack leader (frequently referred to as “Alpha”). When your dog doesn’t acknowledge you Alpha, he may be difficult to control if he’s dominant or rowdy by nature.
  2. Saving Spot’s Life: Training provides the dog owner with voice control which could prevent a tragedy. For example, Spot can be called back safely using a trained command if he becomes loose due to a broken leash or opened door.
  3. Living with an untrained dog: Many dogs are likely to misbehave if they aren’t trained properly. Unfortunately, when dogs misbehave, everyone exposed to the dog suffers: (1) Fido’s confused because everyone’s upset with him for misbehaving (2) the family is frustrated because Fido won’t behave; (3) neighbors are unhappy because Fido is a nuisance; and (4) all dog owners because tougher restrictions will be placed on all dogs because of a pattern of disruptive dogs.

Do you want a dog who exhibits the following characteristics:

  1. goes everywhere with you because he isn’t a nuisance or risk to others
  2. exhibits good manners while guests are visiting
  3. displays appropriate behavior around children
  4. doesn’t lunge at people/other dogs walking by
