Obedience

dog obedienceBasic dog obedience training is not about giving commands and pushing dogs to work hard instead of enjoy life, it's quite the opposite.

A dog working for a human is the most natural and fulfilled dog you could ever meet, canine instincts have developed over thousands of years to do just that, to work for us instinctively. This doesn't have to be in a strict vocational way, it could just be the game where your dog brings that tennis ball back to your hand instead of your feet, or fetching the morning paper from the door for you.

Training dogs should be fun, enriching and bond-building for both of you, if it isn't, then you need to learn more about reward-based dog training for the benefit of both of you.

Competitive Obedience is exactly what you would imagine – obedient and well trained dogs having their abilities tested. General training classes like the Good Citizen Dog Scheme will teach you the basics and then if you decide you want to progress in this sport your dog could even end up doing such advanced exercises as scent discrimination.
