Dog Training

Course Format: Classroom
School/Trainer: Hollywood Paws

Training your dog can save his life. When you have voice control you can save your dog from a probable disaster. Imagine for example someone accidentally leaves the front door open and you notice your dog walking outside, he can safely be called back in on your command. Or if you’re crossing the street with your dog, you can command him to stay until it’s safe to cross instead of him lunging out into the traffic and possibly getting hurt. Not only will your dog become more responsive through dog training, but you will also have more control of his behavior.

A well behaved and educated dog is a delight to own for he can go practically anywhere with you without being a hassle or danger and makes a great addition to your household without annoying anyone around. Also, a well-mannered dog is more welcomed and appreciated and in turn receives more attention and interaction from family members, visitors, or even a people walking by.
