When you get a new dog, be it from a breeder, pet store, shelter/rescue or from a friend, often that dog will come to you untrained or poorly trained. Thinking that you can train a dog like you would a child will lead to heartbreak. Dogs do not understand your language or your thought processes and require both experience and a special set of skills. Bethpage dog training creates canine companions the will be ready to be a perfect partner and housemate for you.
Most can and will learn quickly. However, if you do not know how to train a dog, the dog will end up training you. This can be especially true if you find yourself spoiling your pet. There are many pitfalls and counter-intuitive aspects to effective dog training. Rely on professional Bethpage dog training and ensure that your canine companion has the solid foundation that will last a lifetime.
Dogs are hard-wired from birth to think in terms of a pack mentality. A pack is just their family: the group they hang out with. In a domestic situation, that is you and your family (and any other pets you have). The most important thing in a pack is to have one pack leader. If they come into a new “pack” and don’t see a leader, the dog will automatically assume leadership to ensure the survival of the pack.
If you long for a well-disciplined dog that will walk along beside you, greet your friends in an appropriate manner, be a good companion to you, and not defile your home, you need to know how to train your dog properly. You need to be in control, but not cruel. Bethpage dog training can help you relate to your new dog in a constructive manner.
