Everyone says that a dog is a man’s best friend. But what happens when your best friend gets out of line, barking excessively, biting, or tearing the house apart when you have to run out to get groceries. Unfortunately, when most people realize that Buddy is out of control, they ship him out to the local pound. Chances are Buddy will sit in his chain link kennel until finally the pound has no choice than to put him down in order to make more room for other uncontrollable dogs.
But the pound is not the answer and your dog doesn’t have to be a stranger in your own home. Dogs have unique ways in seeing and interpreting the world around them. What we as humans may see, may not be what your dog sees. The keys to strengthening the communication channels between you and your dog can be found in obedience training.
