Training Your Dog In Potomac


When walking your dog or taking them to the dog park, you may notice that many owners haven’t trained their dog to listen to them well. A lack of training can lead to dogs becoming wild, unpredictable and uncontrollable in different situations. Properly training your dog provides many great benefits

  • It’s safer for your home. You can allow your dog to roam the house even if you’re not there and trust that they won’t rip through furniture, chew random objects and destroy your home. 
  • It’s easier to go out with your dog, knowing how they will react and respond to other dogs and people. 
  • It builds trust and an unbreakable bond when you have a trained dog. 
  • Training can save a dog’s life, particularly if you’re outside. Many untrained dogs may run after another dog, squirrel, or other animal, and could recklessly run across a busy street or intersection. Trained dogs know that it’s important to stay patient and still in these situations. 
  • It allows you to have better control of your dog, even in unfamiliar situations.
