Importance of Dog Training in Memphis, TN

Have you ever thought about how training your dog can make their life happier and healthier? Here at PetVax Affordable Care Hospitals we are proud to offer dog training. We're emphasizing the relationship between dogs and their owners, and teaching about how a well-trained dog can live a happier and longer life. Join in with us to find out how dog training can make your home life calmer and happier while having fun with your furry family member.

Veterinarian Talks Training Benefits

Our veterinarian team is enthusiastic about this month as a teaching experience, showing dog owners how much better life can be for both dogs and families when the pets are well trained. Some of the many advantages to training your pet are:

  • They won't stray and will come when called
  • They won't steal food that might upset their digestion
  • They won't jump on guests
  • They won't escape the yard and roam the neighborhood
  • They won't chase cats or other dogs
  • They know you're in charge

Well-behaved dogs are a pleasure to have around the house, and their calmer behavior has been proven to be a benefit to their health and well-being.

Training Activities for Your Dog

Every family will emphasize different behaviors to train, but here are some you might work on with your dog this month:

  • Healing while walking
  • Sit and stay
  • Staying within boundaries despite temptations
  • The "down" command
  • Fetching
  • Frisbee games
  • Hiking
  • Running with bicycles or rollerbladers
  • Behavior with strangers
  • Barking behavior
