Every dog owner should understand that in having a dog, training him will be lifelong. But sometimes there are things that some dogs don’t easily get and do when you tell them to, even if you’re already training the dog to do it. There are times as well when we are not aware that we are doing it wrong or we simply do not really know how to do it correctly. Educate yourself. Keep in mind that compliance and obedience training can help prevent or treat behavior problems.
Because dogs are part of family, dogs require rules and structures. The rules and structures are not just for the dog but for the dog owner too as those things help you have a better relationship and life with your dog. For this week’s podcast, I share with you 12 ways on how to get better compliance for your pets. Hope this helps you and your dog.
