Obedience training is to train dogs to be obedient, to obey anything and everything they’re told to do. It covers a wide range of lessons a dog can learn, including tricks, family manners, show ring exercises, and skills demonstrations. Sniffing dogs, service dogs for handicapped owners, search and rescue dogs, sled and carting dogs, hunting dogs — all carry their obedience training to the highest degree. They have been trained to obey an unusual set of commands that increase their value as helpers to man.
Obedience training for dogs would be a piece of cake if the dogs spoke the same language that people speak. However, not all the time this happens. Dogs have their own attitudes, voice and body language, and mindset. They can be stubborn, dominant, submissive, or fearful, characteristics that can make them difficult to train. Take time to understand and bond with your pet.
