Taking your dog to dog training classes isn't only about learning how to train your dog. Certainly it is that but much more, it also means you will have a happy canine friend who pays attention, walks near you on or off the leash, sits when you ask him to sit, and hangs out politely while you enjoy a meal with your friends.
What does dog training mean to the dog? It means he has an enjoyable, interesting life in a home where he understands his role and what he needs to do to keep the good things in life coming!
