Does my Dog need Basic Obedience Training?
All dogs can be good dogs and all dogs need training! The sooner you start, the better as it gives you the chance to prevent unwanted behaviors.
But, it’s never too late to “teach an old dog new tricks!” If your dog is pulling on leash, hyper when around other dogs and basically ignores you when out and about, this course will turn his behavior around, so that you can enjoy taking him outside.
