Safety: A well-trained dog is a safe dog. Calling your dog off unsafe food on the floor, or calling your dog to you and away from danger like a moving car are some of the many safety skills you can develop with your dog.
You CAN teach an old dog new tricks: A well-trained dog can be achieved no matter what the age of your dog.
It's just a start to bigger and better things: A good foundation of training can lead to any activity, behavior or job you want your dog to do. A well-trained dog can go on to participate in many fun and rewarding activities such as pet assisted therapy work, dog agility competitions, rally obedience, flyball, dock dogs, to dancing with your dog... just to name just a few!
At Pawsitive Possibilities, we believe training is one of the most important things you can do with your dog. A well thought out training program will teach you both to work together successfully, ensuring a happy, healthy relationship for many years.
The benefits of a well-trained dog are endless, but for most they allow the dog to become a full member of the family – enjoying all of the activities the family does together. This includes traveling, attending outdoor events, going to pet-friendly restaurants, hiking, swimming, to simple walks in the park. Obedience training will also form a bond between you and your dog that will enrich your relationship in many ways, building trust, respect and affection.
