Obedience teaches the basics of:
You love your dog but your dog does some things (maybe lots of things) you are not happy with; jumping up on you or your company, stealing food off the kitchen counter, knocking you down and running out the door, stealing your socks out of the laundry room, chewing “just one,” of your expensive leather shoes, digging holes in your yard, getting in the garbage, and sometimes nastier things like growling and nipping at strangers, or even you and your family.
Your dog needs exercise, discipline, and affection, in that exact order, which makes for a great dog. If done out of order, or not at all, behavioral problems will occur. We train you, to train the dog. Obedience is a language by which owner and dog communicates!
Your dog should be a part of your family and a pleasure in your life. The work you and your family put in to the training of your dog the first two years, are the results you will have for the life of that dog. Some train easy, some take a little more effort. But if you love them, it’s worth the time.
