January is National Train Your Dog Month!
Training your dog should be a daily routine, regardless of his or her age. Even older dogs can benefit from continual training, not just to maintain their behavior, but also for mental stimulation and bonding with you.
To start the month, I'd like to share a handout I created for all of our new puppy owners! You can download your own copy by clicking the link below. Share with friends and family that are thinking of adding a new family member, or if they have already brought one home. It is never too early (or late!) to start training.
For more information regarding puppy training, socialization, and behavior you can check out the resources below:
Train Your Dog Month - Association of Professional Dog Trainers
Dog Training Programs - American Kennel Club
As always, if you have a question regarding your dog's training, behavior, or health do not hesitate to give us a call (or text!), or stop by the office. Our staff is always ready to help.
