Our canine companions provide a special kind of love that lasts fur-ever! Many of us celebrate love in the month of February for Valentine’s Day, but did you know February is also Dog Training Education Month? Training is perhaps the most important factor in the bond between you and your doggie. Here are a few things to know about building love and trust through proper training. Keep reading for a special Valentine’s invitation from Pets a Go Go!
A loving relationship is built on trust. Consistent training will show pup that you care, and that they are a high priority to you. A foundation in trust will allow doggie to feel happy & confident navigating the world, and safe & secure within the owner-pup dynamic.
Creating a Lifelong Bond
Time spent training is time spent together! Positive reinforcement—from giving praise, treats, petting, and playing with toys—makes the training experience fun and bonds you with your fur baby. Remember: training is a lifelong activity, not just for new puppies! An owner’s commitment to training will shape the bond of mutual respect with their fur-baby.
Communication is Key
Communication is key to any happy relationship. From your very first training session, you begin building key communication skills with your pet. As training continues, they grow to understand you, and you become more attune to your doggie’s personality and unique strengths.
Bonding Beyond Tricks
What happens after a training session is just as important for your bond! Free time for active play, a nice walk followed by a nap on the couch together allows doggie to decompress and digest all the learning and progress they’ve made! These playful and relaxing moments truly solidify your bond!
Want to start or level-up your training? Pets a Go Go’s award-winning staff performs training in or near our Briarcliff Manor or Stamford facilities. Group classes, private at-home lessons, daycare based training, and our premier 21 day residential training program are all excellent options for doggie parents looking for training support!
