Why Is Obedience Training Important for Puppies?
Obedience training is important for puppies because it helps to keep them safe. A puppy that can follow at least basic commands can be kept out of some troublesome situations. It’s important that the puppy knows how to obey commands even when there are distractions around. This is something that’s useful when you’re away from home with the pup. They’ll know what to do when you have them at the dog park or a pet store.
Making sure your puppy knows at least the basic obedience commands can also keep other pets and humans who are around the puppy safe. It’s imperative that every puppy, especially those that will grow into larger dogs, know simple things like not jumping up on people.
Puppies also need to know how to come and sit. They need to know how to remain in place. They also need to know how to walk on a loose leash so you don’t always have to keep it tight. This gives them a little more freedom to explore when they’re out walking with you.
Another reason obedience training is important is that it fosters trust between you and your puppy. Your puppy needs to know that you’re going to care for it, but you have to do this while establishing that you’re the alpha in the home. In the wild, the alpha dog is the one that’s in charge of the pack.
