Have you been considering dog training, but you aren’t really sure where to begin? Have you tried doing a few things at home on your own, but you aren’t seeing the best results? Training your dog takes work, and it is important to develop good communication skills so your dog always knows what is expected. There are several types of dog training you may want to investigate. Here are a few you may want to consider depending on the age and experience of your dog.
- On Leash – Being able to walk your dog on a leash properly is critical. It isn’t just about preventing the dog from dragging you around town; it is also for their own protection and the protection of others. This is especially important for puppies when they are beginning their basic training.
- Off Leash – Having a dog that comes when it is called and stays close to you when you ask it to is very important. Dog training to teach your dog off leash commands is important for both the dog and you as a dog owner.
- Kennel Training – Kennel training is an overnight program where your dog works with a dog trainer to gain specific skills. This might be good for a rescue dog who has never had training, or a dog with specific issues that should be addressed for proper socialization and manners.
- Personal Protection – Dog training for personal protection often works with specific dog breeds. You and your dog will gain confidence, and you will feel more comfortable leaving your home and family in the protection of your canine.
- Recreational Training – Dog training doesn’t always have to be about business! Your dog can enjoy a number of recreational training options, including nose work and search and detection training. While both of these options can be used in the real world, your dog may also enjoy them for fun.
