Dog Training Can Solve Many Problems For You and Your Dog
By Mike Long
Dog training in the form of basic obedience is the foundation of problem solving for your dog. In order for your dog to have a safe, happy, and productive life he must first learn to sit, stay, and come when he is called. Dog training will help him learn to refrain from bad habits such as incessant barking, biting, chewing, fighting, and using the bathroom indoors.
The two most common misconceptions about dog training are the dominance issue and the dogâ€™s age. It is not necessary for you to be the â€˜alpha dogâ€™ in order to teach basic cooperation and respect. This is done through kindness and support rather than through fear.
