CHOOSING A DOG OBEDIENCE TRAINER

Watch a Dog Obedience Class or TwoHave Fun Training Your Dog
You can help make your dog training experience fun for everyone by choosing the right obedience class for your dog or puppy.

Ask For Referrals
* Ask your friends and vet for recommendations.
* Search the phonebook for dog training schools and clubs.

Watch a Dog Obedience Class or Two
When watching the class there are a few key things to watch for:
* Trainer's personality and teaching technique - do you like it?
* The instructions and demonstrations should be clear and easy to understand.
* If there is a variety of breeds and sizes, does the instructor adapt the class curriculum to fit the dog.
* KEY - Do the instructor and students (dogs & owners) look like they are enjoying themselves.
* Does the class cover the behavior you are most concerned about?
* Is it practical? Will you be able to apply the lessons to daily living?
* KEY - Does the method taught leave the dog with his dignity.

Communication Basics
* Come when called, even while distracted
* Wait at the door
* Controlled leash walking
* Stay off (to stop the dog from jumping up on people)

Sophie & BethDog Training Is Enjoyable
Choosing a dog obedience instructor and class that you enjoy is key. You're much more likely to continue classes and do the homework necessary to fully benefit from the class.

A dog with manners is a true joy to be around and a Best Friend. Enjoy your training and your dog.
