Setting The Foundation For a Well Behaved Dog – Dog Training Virginia Beach Blog
While at a seminar with a dog trainer in San Diego we talked about how teaching your dog a solid set of behavioral rules might be the most crucial part of your time spent training your dog. If you’ve just adopted a new part of the family and are looking to begin fundamental obedience training, look no further than Hampton Roads Dog Training Virginia Beach. We work one-on-one to meet with you and your dog and assess the best structure for your individual needs.
Why Do Dogs Need Foundation Training?
All dogs need a basic set of ‘manners’, such as recall (responding to their name), sitting/staying, dropping or leaving objects, and focus training. All of this will prepare you and them for situations outside your home in high-stimulus environments where you may need them to listen to you more than ever despite outside distractions. A dog with a strong obedience foundation will have confidence around new people or dogs and will respect and obey your training commands. This is a long and involved process, and it takes dedication to set this foundation, but these behaviors will last for years to come and will establish trust between you and your dog.
