Mastering basic obedience commands is a vital part of being a responsible dog owner.  These basic commands make navigating the relationship between animal and owner much easier and keep both you and your pet safe in emergency situations.

From an outsider’s perspective, basic training can look either very simple or extremely difficult.  It’s important to appreciate that training can take a lot of work but also understand any dog can learn at least the most basic and necessary commands.  Dog owners occasionally run into challenges when training so don’t become frustrated.  Asking assistance from a professional trainer benefits first-time owners or individuals struggling with teaching commands or correcting problem behaviors.  Don’t ever hesitate to ask for help!
