Is Dog Training Necessary?

Apr 17, 2008
Dog disciplining is an Art not a scientific discipline. Many trainers and training installations develop an education method. Dogs will always be dogs and humans will continually try to make their to behave like a person. Dog Training is just as important as feeding and watering. That 5lb lovely, precious, huggable, kissable, adorable puppy, could turn into a 60lb nightmare if not shown the proper direction.

Dog disciplining is an enormously rewarding career. One should remember first of all that, for the most part, educating is a "service" profession and that the trainer is usually working with people who happen to have dogs. Dog training is more than just telling your dog to avoid doing what she's doing, it is the action of instructing a dog to exhibit certain desired dog behaviour in specific conditions. Correct dog training is not a "quick fix" - it is an ongoing, life-long process.

Dog training is not necessarily a difficult process but it is a process which requires a great deal of patience as well as the ability to interpret which types of training techniques are most effective for the particular dog you are training. There are a number of different methods which can be used to train a dog.

One of the main needs for dog training is aggression. Aggression related dog behaviour problems include biting, jumping, barking uncontrollably and not obeying instructions. Once a dog maturates from a puppy to an adult, it will become much more difficult to train. Aggression includes any behaviour that is meant to intimidate or harm another animal or person. Some examples of aggresive behaviour are snarling, snapping, barking and growling.

Obedience training may prevent many of these problems and can help solve the bad conducts that exist. Many people believe that obedience training is something that is done to a dog to make it perform some artificial activity on command. Obedience is a part of the cultural setting defined for your dog in your house. Obedience is about you having a family relationship with your dog and the dog answering to you. It doesn't matter if the dog trainer can train your dog; what matters is that the dog reacts to your commands.

The process of training a dog is something we do with our dogs not to our dogs. Both you and your dog will enjoy the reward-based training methods you will learn together. Dog training is definitely not rocket science and is easier than you would expect particularly if you can get help from a good dog training book or guide. Perhaps the most important point with dog training is to keep a level head.

Dog training is supposed to be a fun process, believe it or not.

Dog training is vital to teach a dog what is acceptable and what is not. A dog that hasn't been given any instructions or limitations can't know what is to be expected of him. Both you and your dog will enjoy the reward-based training methods you will learn together.

Obedience is more than just directions - when taught correctly; it gets the common nomenclature between you and your dog. It changes your relationship from one of frustration, to one of harmony.

Have fun with your pet-friend!
