When you purchase a new dog you expect it to become a part of the family, but what if your furry friend seems to be even more stubborn and rebellious than your teenager? Your dog may be in need of some obedience training. |
Training a dog takes time and effort just like it took time and effort to raise your children, but it is also rewarding.
If you need information about dog training, you could do a little bit of research at the library, call your Norfolk vet, or sign you and your dog up for training classes.
It may be shocking to you as you work with your dog that a lot of the time the owner needs just as much training as the pet. Dogs respond to consistency just as children do, everyone knows that we’re not always consistent. The owner’s lack of consistency could be the very reason that the dog is struggling with behavior issues.
Working with and training your dog can be a lot of fun. Once you have the basics down you may even decide to get into more challenging training. Pretty soon you could be taking your dog to the Norfolk vet for grooming so that he will look even more impressive when he wins best of show.
Don’t be surprised if when you finish your dog training classes it turns out that your dog is easier to get along with than your teenager. One thing’s for sure. Your dog won’t steal your car and keep it out past curfew.
