Dog Training Makes Everyone Happier
At Smoochie Poochies of Windsor and Lakeshore, Obedience Training isn’t just for dogs. A dog who knows boundaries and rules is a happy dog, but you’ll be happier, too. If your dog lacks manners or behaves spontaneously, they could be putting themselves, other dogs, and their human friends at risk.
Obedience Training keeps everyone happy. A well-behaved dog means you won’t be frustrated with constant discipline when your favorite shoes are used as a chew toy. A properly trained pet also means not placing human friends at risk from nips or bites, and keeps your dog safe from dangerous situations like running into traffic.
