Q: Can't I Just Train My Dog Myself?

A. Sure you can. But it helps to have help.

In fact, NOW is a great time to learn HOW to train your dog. The Association of Pet Dog Trainers has declared January as Train Your Dog Month!

Dogs that are not trained often exhibit unwanted behaviors like destructive chewing, jumping on people, uncontrolled barking, pulling on leash, and housebreaking problems. Untrained dogs are more likely to end up at shelters, abandoned, or abused.

Socializing and training your dog means that you and your friends and family will enjoy your dog more. Training is simple and fun and creates a bond between you and your dog.

Its easy to get started. Go the APDT web site and click on Trainer Search or click HERE.

You can also go to the APDT's Facebook site or participate in webinars on subjects like Dog Safety for Kids and Loose Leash Walking.

A professional dog trainer will give you the skills, confidence, and support to help your dog become the best family companion he or she can be.
