Training is one of the most vital components in ensuring your dog enjoys a happy, healthy, and safe life. Training your dog is important for many reasons, but most crucially, for their own safety and the safety of others. Whether they are about to run somewhere they should not, on the cusp of eating something unhealthy, or on the verge of jumping on someone, training your dog to follow basic commands avoids dangerous situations. Dogs that are well-mannered and able to follow commands are able to join their human on many more adventures and behave in a variety of settings. Training your dog also builds connection, provides mental stimulation, and is a fun experience for your pup.
