Sep 17, 2008
As a pet owner it should be your primary focus to have dog that is trained and obedient. One reason for this is that trained dogs are better behaved and have a less likely chance of lashing out at a human. Due to dog attacks many neighborhoods are requiring that all dogs be trained as well. This applies even more so to breed that are thought to have aggression issues such as pit bulls and rottweilers are at the top of this list.

Training your dog well make her more enjoyable for the family as opposed to a chained up dog in the back yard, and if you have children then training you dog is a must. By training you dog you will lower the chance of your children ever being bitten by your dog, and child safety should be at the top of the list for any family wanting to buy a dog.

Below are the basic commands that are taught to a dog before it is considered trained.

Dog training helps supply man of the needs of your dog as well including exercise and a feeling of importance.

Dogs were breed in the beginning to carry out important job such as guarding property, or help herding livestock. When an animal does not feel important then they tend to not be as happy, and are less likely to feel connected to the owner.
