Dog Obedience Training: Does My Little Dog Still Need It?

By    |   Tuesday, 13 Jan 2015 03:59 PM

Dog obedience training helps pets of all sizes. Owners of small dogs might think training isn’t necessary, imagining that classes are usually for bigger breeds. However, the breed doesn’t really matter. All dogs should be taught to have good manners.

If you train your dog yourself, even using the right methods, and find problems still exist, it could be time to look into professional training for your little dog. Behavioral problems that don’t go away could become worse over time.

While issues such as barking excessively, digging holes in the yard, destroying materials in the house, or eliminating inside the house may often be attributed to larger dogs, they are just as likely for smaller ones.

Basic training sessions may consist of housebreaking and walking techniques, and advanced classes review the basics while going even further.

Small and large dogs benefit from training that includes socialization and addressing chewing and barking.

Dog obedience training should also be fun for your dog. As long as your little dog enjoys the training or sessions, it will learn quickly and will benefit both you and the dog for years to come.
