In a stress-filled world, dog ownership is a welcome release from daily difficulties and a boost to the owner’s mental well-being. Chicago is a fun place to own a dog, since it contains beautiful paths for walking and meeting up with fellow dog lovers and dog beaches along Lake Michigan for fun in the sun. However, a dog that does not get along well in social situations or that does not respond to direction in the home can be more stress-inducing than stress-relieving. Thankfully, Chicago has many dog obedience training options to choose from.
Why Train a Dog?
Since pet ownership is often entered into with the idea of companionship and stress relief, a dog that is non-compliant negates those hopes. By having one’s dog trained professionally, one can ensure a reduction of problem behaviors brought on by stress, like chewing, inappropriate barking, and misplaced aggression. Especially in the Chicago area, where socialization with other dogs and their owners is common, dogs need to know how to respond to guests in the home, how to interact with people and dogs they meet, how to curb aggression and return to the owner off the leash and much more. Effectively training one’s canine companion ensures a long life with the dog, saving the pup’s life by greatly reducing one’s desire to find the dog a new home.
Types of Dog Training
There are multiple levels of dog training available to owners. From puppy school, more focused obedience training, private lessons, and the intense but effective board and train dog boot camp, there a number of options to meet the needs of dogs and their owners. Dog Boot Camp in Chicago employs skilled trainers who consistently lay a foundation of encouragement and clear expectations for their canine students. This intense method of training immerses pups in a regimen of patience and repetition, using rewards to encourage the desired behavior more than punishment to discourage unwanted behavior. Providing instruction after the camp is over, trainers give owners and their dogs freedom and control in relationships with each other that will be maintainable long-term.
