Common Dog Training Myths
Here are some common misunderstandings about dog training:
Older dogs can be trained. It’s true that puppies are most impressionable, but older dogs have greater focus. With repetition and patience your mature dog can learn new behaviors and abandon pesky ones.
Misbehaviors often have little to do with dominance. Many dog owners think their dog is trying to establish dominance by pulling the leash, ignoring their commands, or chewing up furniture. In truth, your dog just doesn’t know it’s wrong. Proper training teaches your dog the distinction between good and bad habits, and he’s usually happy to comply.
Puppies don’t simply grow out of bad behavior. If you let your puppy chew shoes because “that’s what puppies do,” he won’t learn the proper way to behave. Consistent, clear communication from the beginning will help your dog grow into the good boy you know he is.
Dog Training Programs
