There are many factors that determine the choice of suitable obedience courses for you and your puppy.

Puppy training: home or away?

There are advantages to studying at home and studying in a group class. Some trainers come to your home and offer private individual training. Some owners prefer to train their dogs.


Home training can allow you and your dog to focus more on themselves. Training in a group class will help your dog concentrate, even if other dogs are distracted.


One of the benefits of learning at home is that it's private-you and your trainer can focus on things that you particularly want to teach your dog, while in group classes you can spend time on things that are not important to you personally. In some cases, you may have no choice but to train at home; in remote or rural areas, you may not have a local school where you can attend group classes.


Selection of obedient teachers after training

Most educational schools will gladly allow you to attend and observe a class or two to make sure the learning style matches your beliefs (leave them at home to do this. Most dogs learn best through positive reinforcement training; rewarding the dog for making the right choice and holding back the reward or ignoring the dog for making the wrong choice.


When watching the class, pay attention to the dogs; do they look happy? Relaxed? Excited about the job? Does a dog trainer and owner encourage? Are the courses conducted safely and effectively? If you don't feel comfortable in a particular learning school, your dog won't either, and you will cause your dog to fail. Look for a school where you will feel comfortable; both you and your dog will achieve the best success in this environment.

Recognize Common Dog Training Problems

But in the human world, this behavior is not all right. Remember that your dog was born and only knew how to be a dog. If you want him to live successfully in the human world, you must first teach him what is acceptable. The easiest way to do this is with a puppy, but older dogs can also learn.
