Benefits of a trained dog are nearly limitless, some benefits are: Puppy classes provide the opportunity for getting your new family member started off right. Puppy socialization has been found to be critical to the psychological health of adult dogs. Dog training classes provide dog owners the skills and knowledge of normal dog behaviors. Training provides dogs with the basic good manners (from the polite greeting when guests arrive, to walking nicely on the leash). It feels great when your dog can understand your verbal communication and respond you in a positive way.

Both mine walk impeccably to heel and on a nice loose lead wherever we go - and I have used fun and positive training methods to do this. It does not take pack leaders. It takes you and your dog coming together to access a behaviour and working as two to achieve, and having fun while doing so. Dogs learn better with these type of methods. Be on your dog's level and you will both understand one another so well.

unpoid: Are you a pet owner who is preparing to move to another place with the pets? While searching for a pet shipper company, you should also give a few thought to how you are going to deal with your pet during your move.
