Why dog tranning is important?
In my article today I will cover some basics about dog training and why it is so important. In today's world dogs serve principally as companions in our busy every day lives. This includes our recreational activities and they share their canine life with us. I can't think of any other pet that forms such a close bond with a person and actually adapts to all possible circumstances of human life. They have the ability to communicate with us in their own special way and that makes them superior to all other household pets.
Most people don't know, but some dogs behaviors come from their wolf ancestors. See wolves like canines are oriented toward life in a social unit. That is what makes the close relationship between a dog and a human possible. Alike, a wolf pack is organized group under the leadership of two dominant experienced mated pair. There is an intense loyalty among the pack members, with strict rules for coexistence, and teaching their young help to ensure the packs survival.
Like the wolf our domestic dog behave like they are apart of a young wolf pack. They display willingness to fit into our pack and follow our rules. Thing is they need an "alpha leader" to show them acceptable behavior for their life together.
The dog is not like most domestic animals, they do not live in a cage and are free to accompany us almost everywhere. With this in mind it makes it essential that a dog learn the rules for everyday life with us. This includes what behavior is acceptable in and outside of the house. Dogs should not go out on their own to jump on everybody they meet or regard strangers as enemies. When a dog is well integrated into the pack he can stay alone for many hours without acting out or misbehaving.
Coexistence is possible without problems when things are controlled. Remember that our canine has a natural willingness to accept rules and training represents nothing negative to them. Training is actually quite normal for a dog and is important and necessary. It is important as well that we don't view our canine as a child, partner or toy as this can lead to big problems in training.
Just how much obedience we need is another question we need to answer. It will depend on your goal and your mindset. Some people reject barrack yard type of dog training and others think dogs should be totally free and often struggle to maintain any sort of 'good' behavior from their pet. The answer will also have to do with where our dog spends his time. Little training is needed for a guard dog inside of a fenced property. Now a dog that is living with a family and is apart of our daily life will need extensively more training. Look at it this way, the better a dog is trained the easier life will be as you when enjoy it with your dog.
