Training is one of the most important activities you can do with your dog. From socialization to obedience to agility to nose work. Dog are intelligent creatures that need to be challenged and encouraged. Through training, your dog can learn to do something as simple as sit or to sniff out all kinds of goodies. Training doesn’t have to be intense but it must be fun. The important thing to remember is it’s all about the relationship that you build with them. That relationship should be built on trust, respect, and understanding.
