Dog obedience classes


Dog obedience classes allow pet owners to train their dogs to prevent or change bad behavior problems. Proper obedience training helps establish good communication between a dog and its owner.

Most dog obedience classes are geared towards training both puppies and older dogs to act appropriately in the right place at the right time.

Obedience classes have been proven to be the most beneficial when dogs are trained at an early age. Puppies as young as eight weeks are often trained in groups to help them learn socialization skills and friendliness.

Before registering your pet for obedience training, you need to know what to look for when choosing a dog obedience class:

Find out how large the class sizes are to make sure your dog will receive the proper amount of attention.

Both puppy classes and classes for older dogs should train your pet to obey commands, learn to stay when told, and demonstrate appropriate social behavior when around strangers.

Your dog will be coming in contact with many other dogs during the training, so it’s important to look for classes or schools that require each dog to have a record of their medical health. This will reduce the risk of exposing your dog to diseases that other dogs may carry.

You should ask to see the credentials of the dog trainers or obedience class instructors; or if that is not possible, ask for a list of satisfied clients willing to talk about their experiences. If the school or class refuses to provide that information, it’s a warning sign that you need to look further before deciding. The most reliable recommendations for the best dog obedience classes come from friends and other dog owners.

If the school or class offers boarding facilities for dogs in training, be sure to ask if they are able and willing to administer medications or provide special diets if needed.

Schedule a visit to the class or school before you commit to registering. Check the school’s list of activities to be sure there is a variety of activities designed to reinforce any behavioral issues your dog may have.

Some trainers will conduct dog obedience classes in your home. This can be beneficial if your dog needs to overcome bad behaviors, is too aggressive, or does not get along well with other dogs. If your pet is exhibiting very aggressive behavior towards other animals or humans, you should look for a personalized training course designed to deal with specific behavior problems.

Should you decide to train your dog on your own be sure to include the following goals:

Train your dog to walk while obeying commands.

Don’t let it tug at the leash.

Train it to meet and greet visitors without jumping on them.

Learn how to deal with and stop aggressive behavior.

Learn how to establish effective and specific communication between you and your dog.

It was long believed that puppies were too young to be trained. That belief has been replaced with solid evidence that puppies 10 weeks of age can be taught to obey certain commands. If your pet is still a puppy, now would be an ideal time to start dog obedience classes, whether at a school, a private class, or at home.

A well-behaved pet is a wonderful companion.

Had not seen your blog before, but I saw a link from another site and thought this post was especially great and very helpful-thanks for posting. I think lesson 2 is especially important as we should not let the perfect be the enemy of the good. Better to find common ground and make some progress rather than none at all.

Color of the Month // October’s Orange

Orange: Fall 2012
1. Light and Shadow Dress, Modcloth  //  2. Fossil Vintage Revival Clutch, Zappos
  3. Vegan Lip Tar in Beta, Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics
4. Judy Smoking Slipper Flats, Lulu’s  //   5. Believe Necklace, Asos 
  6. Felicity Dip Dyed Scarf, Jigsaw London //  7. Urbanears Headphones, UO

With Halloween just a few days away, it feels like the perfect time to pay tribute to the quintessential color of this time of year: orange.  I’m admittedly picky when it comes to orange.  It has to be the right shade, and how I define “right” depends on the object.  For example, I’m quite fond of muted oranges and rust tones in my clothing and accessories, but likely wouldn’t wear a dramatically bright or neon orange unless it was just a pop.  The same goes for home decor and other non-wearable items, although I do love a nice vibrant orange when it comes to mid-century vintage pieces (my most prized piece of kitchenware is an orange Pyrex daisy bowl that was my mother’s).  Regardless of shade, there’s no denying that orange is October’s official color.  The items above represent some of my current favorites.

It’s Friday you guys!  I’m spending the rest of the morning tying up work stuff for the week, and then I’m taking a short road trip up to Milwaukee to meet Robbie and the band for their two-night Halloween run.  Each year, in a different city, they play two shows in a row the weekend before Halloween.  The second night is always quite the event.  The entire evening is a mash-up theme, so they play mash-ups of different songs, and the band, crew, family, friends and fans wear mashed-up costumes. I’m not going to reveal my costume yet, but I’ll post some pictures on Twitter and Instagram (user name bubbyandbean) tomorrow before the show. :)

What are your plans this weekend?  And what about orange?  Love it or leave it?
