Usually there’s two or maybe more people involved with Dog obedience training – the handler and the trainer. Sometimes it might be one individual who combines two roles together. Training your dog in obedience can be a long and continuing process which is dependent upon your new puppy, the training method, and the skills and data of both – the handler as well as the trainer.
Obedience Training simply means the training of any dog. It could range from basic (beginner’s) training with a higher level (advanced) competition among different clubs where more accuracy and commands in addition to performance are judged and scored.
How do you determine if the dog is obedient? Just start training using the basic commands and see whether it responds every time you give the command. Don’t assume all dog that goes through Obedience Training is obedient though. When it doesn’t respond towards the trainer’s command straight away, your dog isn’t obedient yet. Keep training, and it will. Repetition and love is the key factors to an obedient dog.
