What is Obedience Training and Why Does it Matter?

“Sit,” “Stay,” “Come”.

Don’t you just feel happy and proud seeing your puppy or dog following these commands? Not only does obedience training make taking care of your dog easier, but it also creates a stronger bond between you and your dog. 

What is Obedience Training?

Who doesn’t like a dog or puppy who is able to at least follow basic commands? Obedience training is a process of teaching your dog to obey basic commands and behave in a desired manner. During obedience training, your puppy is taught verbal commands like “sit,” “stay,” “come,” and “down,” as well as nonverbal commands through body movements and hand gestures. 

When training, positive reinforcements like getting treats and praise will encourage your pup’s enthusiasm for learning. When they feel happy and know that how they’re doing makes you happy, they become more eager to learn!

Why Is Obedience Training Important?


A well-behaved dog is less likely to get into dangerous situations, such as running into the street, acting aggressively when encountering other animals,  or biting someone they see as a threat. 


Obedience training gives you greater control over your puppy’s behavior as they learn to follow commands. This helps prevent undesirable behaviors like barking, chewing, and jumping.


Training helps you and your dog communicate more effectively and strengthens your bond. Your puppy learns your verbal and non-verbal cues while communicating with you in their own way! 


A well-behaved puppy is a happy and contented puppy. Since there is communication, trust, and a stronger bond between the two of you, it fosters a happier relationship between you and your puppy. 

How Should My Pup Get Obedience Training? 

Getting your pup trained at the earliest time possible allows them to learn commands faster. You can provide your puppy with basic command training, but a professional trainer will allow you to achieve faster and more reliable results. Getting a professional trainer saves you time and the peace of mind that your puppy is given expert training.
