Here at Ck9 Training, one of the most common questions we get asked is: Why should my dog be trained? Many people tend to equate dog training with learning a few commands such as sitting, rolling over or playing dead, and are left wondering what genuine benefits this has for their pet. Is it all worth it?
The truth is – yes, it most certainly is worth it. And for more reasons than you might realise.
Perhaps the most crucial reason for training your dog lies in its personal safety. A well-trained dog is far safer than an untrained dog. At Ck9 Training we can help protect your pet from harm and danger, particularly with issues surrounding traffic, altercations with other dogs, and the potential of becoming lost when running away whilst off the lead. Any loving pet owner values the safety of their dog, and training it effectively is one of the best ways to ensure that safety.
A Happy Dog
Training is a way of setting boundaries for your dog, and a dog without boundaries can often become anxious. By learning the clear rules set out by training, your dog will find its place with you, and its anxiety will be replaced by a feeling of comfort and happiness.
A Happy Owner
There is nothing better than developing a true and close bond with your dog. This can be difficult to attain if you feel your dog is misbehaving – if for example, it is destroying your house with wayward chewing or peeing, or leading you to feeling ashamed by its barking or aggression around others, training can help take the stress out of owning a dog and enhance the flow of love between the two of you. Not only does a well-trained dog feel less anxiety, but so too does the owner.
