Basic Obedience Training

Obedience training is a must for your pet's safety and well-being. It will give you access to critical information and guidance and help you establish a positive working relationship with your pet. In addition, a well-trained dog is always a pleasure to be around.

When should training start?

Contrary to popular belief, you can teach an old dog new tricks! However, the sooner training begins, the better. Puppies can begin training at around eighteen weeks. Problems such as housebreaking, chewing, and "jumping up" can easily be corrected if you start working with your dog as soon as he/she comes in to your home.

What is basic obedience?

Basic obedience training consists of the following commands: come, sit, down, stay, heel, and variations of all of these. Jim's basic obedience program utilizes repetition, positive reinforcement and lots of loving care. Jim will teach your dog to respond to voice commands and hand signals.

The key to successful obedience training is your commitment and willingness to spend time every day working and playing with your dog. berea ky berea ky dog obedience training
