Teach your dog manners at a young age. Remember, dogs crave boundaries and you desire peace in the household. So take charge and keep in mind that you are the pack leader, and your dog will follow the pack leader.
Teach your dog that misbehaving – nipping, biting and barking incessantly – is not good dog etiquette. Even very young puppies can be taught the sit/stay, down and come commands. You can get a good dog training book, watch the Dog Whisperer or enroll you and your pup in obedience school.
If you are a proud parent of an adult dog that will need some retraining in doggy etiquette 101 don’t fret. It’s never to late to teach an older dog new tricks and the art of good manners. Dog Training Collars can be very helpful in getting the desired results.
