Personally providing your dog with proper obedience training has some very obvious benefits — establishing strong bonds with your dog, you'll correct bad behaviors, it stimulates your dog's intellect and desire to learn, it encourages inclusion between your dog and the rest of your household, and, in the long run, it saves you time that otherwise would be dedicated to cleaning up your dog's messes, smoothing over offended parties, and repairing damaged property. Here, I'd like to bring to light some of the less obvious, but no less important, benefits of obedience training. Hopefully you'll be further encouraged to make obedience training an activity you and your dog will embark on immediately, if not sooner.
Books and Training Guides – There are many hundreds of dog training books, audio courses, magazines, and websites available to you. Obviously, buying a $15 dog training book is much more cost-efficient than paying perhaps a couple hundred dollars to attend training lessons. However, training your dog with a book is difficult because you have no one to help you understand poorly-explained principles. You also have no one to demonstrate actions and movements to you. Since dog training involves many time-sensitive movements and actions, as well as slight movements and positions that can easily be improperly implemented, it is imperative in your dog training that you can see those actions demonstrated for you. Additionally, training your dog using a book or written guide provides very little accountability and motivation for most dog trainers. Much more often than not, dog owners quit regular training sessions with their dog before they complete the book or guide.
It's a fun, enjoyable experience. Don't look at dog training as a chore. View it as an opportunity for you and your budding best friend to begin forging a deep, mutually beneficial bond and relationship. Approach it as just one of many enjoyable activities you and your dog will share. Follow up your obedience training with trick training and you'll be sure to have a great deal of fun. While some of the tricks will present a challenge for both of you, just make it a pleasurable experience. Be patient, be kind, and be generous with your praise when your dog achieves those little successes.
