Whether you realize it or not, you’re in a relationship with your dog. Maybe not the kind you’d display on your Facebook profile, but make no mistake, it’s real!
This can be a tricky concept for some people. We’re used to thinking of our human family members on one plane and the family dog on another.
But when you consider that you live together, play together, travel together, and rely on each other for companionship and love, you realize that the relationship you have with your dog can be just as important and meaningful as any other relationship you have.
And just as in all relationships, it takes effort to maintain a healthy one.
When someone says they’re met their soulmate, everyone knows what they’re talking about. They’ve met someone they’re deeply connected to, someone who compliments their life perfectly, who accepts them and loves them just as they are.
When you think about it, those are the same qualities you find in most dogs!
Oh the decisions! Private training or group training? Day training or Board & Train?
The good news is you’ve got options. The bad news is…you’ve got options! You’ve got to decide which method is best for you and your dog.
The bottom line is that you want to keep your dog safe by training her to listen and respond to what you want. And you want to develop strong bonds and a loving, harmonious relationship with the dog that shares your home, your family, and your life. Whichever method you choose, rest assured you’ll have those two important needs met.
Baby, it’s COLD outside!
As you look at your dog’s built in fur coat with envy, remember that the cold weather affects them, too, perhaps in ways you hadn’t realized.
For example, your logical brain might tell you that dogs with fur can’t possibly get frostbite…but those un-furry paws are susceptible to frostbite, just like your un-fuzzy hands.
When was the last time you tried to learn a new skill, something that was totally unfamiliar to you? When was the last time you tried to change a behavior or get rid of a bad habit? Was it easy or hard?
If you’re like most of us, you just have to think back on the last New Year’s resolution you made to find your answer!
Learning new skills and changing behaviors can be a challenge for all of us, dogs included. Just like humans, dogs have different learning styles and personalities to consider.
Fortunately, when it comes to dog training, you’ve got several options. One of the best options is private training. Here are 7 reasons why it might be the best option for your dog.
We see you. We know you.
That furry creature isn’t just your dog. That’s your baby, your companion, your confidante, your friend, your ride-or-die.
Your dog is a member of your family!
We know you treat your dogs like it too, by feeding them quality food, taking care of their medical needs, and providing toys and a comfy bed to sleep in.
We’d like to encourage you to take your excellent care one step further, because we’d never want you to experience the heartache of not being prepared should your friend need first aid.
If there’s one thing that can bring delight, fun, focus, family togetherness, and a feeling of purpose, it’s bringing a puppy into the family.
