What Makes a Good Dog
Well Trained Dog makes a Handy Dandy Dog Experience
According to Midwest Animal Rescue & Services "Inga From" provides great insight to behaved dogs
In my opinion take the time to crate train your dog. It is a place that makes them feel safe. The first few days in bringing home a new puppy and getting them used to their crate can be rough with the crying pup, but beneficial on the long run; I will admit I have been know to sleep on the floor the first couple of nights next to them with my fingers in the cage so they could feel me. I am all about training, yes maybe soem of my approaches may be off the books. I would rather have a well behaved not than one i have to apologize for and that can lead to contention in the home.
Training serves to strengthen the bond between a dog and his owner and it builds communication, respect and understanding.... it enables you to have immediate control over his behavior in an emergency situation which may save his life..
A well-behaved, trained dog is a pleasure to own because he can go virtually anywhere without being a risk or nuisance to others - and don't we all want a dog who exhibits appropriate behavior in a crowd, good manners when we have guests in our home, is reliable around children and doesn't threaten other dogs or people in the community? The bottom line is that dog training truly benefits everyone.
Without proper training, many dogs are likely to misbehave and when owners allow their dogs to misbehave, everyone suffers: The owner, because he or she lives with the dog; the dog, because everyone's down on him for misbehaving; the dog's owner's neighbors, because living next to a difficult dog is no one's idea of fun; and ultimately every dog owner, because each incidence where a dog creates a nuisance increases anti-dog sentiment .
