A Biting Dog is Not Mans Best Friend

by Tammy Armstrong

Why is Dog Training Important? You may have heard the phrase Dogs are man's best friend, but this will not be the case if you do not properly train your new dog. Properly training your dog comes with many rewards, but it takes time and commitment from you. When it comes to training them, it is important not to let your emotions get in the way of successful training.

As baby boomers are becoming empty nesters, they are turning to pets for companionship. More than ever people are pampering their pets and giving them the much needed love they deserve and desire. However, there are many people who love the thought of a dog and rush out and purchase a dog without considering the time and effort that will need to go into properly training their new friend. Just like children need to be taught what is and is not appropriate behavior, your new pet will need to be taught and trained if you want an obedient and well trained dog.

The truth is that your dog needs discipline and training. If your dog is allowed to act any way it wants, they will not be able to develop a clear sense of right and wrong. They will dig, chew, bite, jump and put themselves in harms way, which will not be good for the dog or your family. It is not good for the dog because they will not have the necessary training they need to be the kind of pet that you and your family want. Company will not enjoy coming to visit, if they know you have a dog that jumps up on people and does not listen to you.

Dog training is not just an important step for the owner?s peace of mind, but it is also important to the safety of your new pet itself. When it comes to the pet, this is something that many pet owners do not think about until it is too late.

Dogs that are well trained will be less likely to perform dangerous acts that could hurt themselves or people. These include, chasing cars, getting hit by a car, running away, or interacting with a dangerous dog that is not happy with your dog entering its territory. If your dog runs away and bites someone, you as the pet owner could get into serious trouble and will be held responsible. Even a sweet natured dog can get into trouble, if they hurt a child while playing too rough, simply because they did not learn how not to play gently with a child.

Training your dog not only helps to teach your dog patience and consideration, it also keeps you and your family safe. This is very important and should not be overlooked. The best time to start training your new dog is when they are a puppy, or as soon as you bring them home, do not put it off for another day. You will have a peace of mind knowing your family and pet are safe, and your dog will be able to grow up with an instilled set of instructions and sense of obedience.
