|The Importance of Obedience Training|
The Importance of Training Your Dog
are available for dogs as young as 2 to 5 months old. These "kindergarten"
classes are designed to socialize puppies and teach the very basics
of training. Other basic obedience classes (not specifically designed
as puppy classes) allow puppies to start training at 5 to 6 months of
age. Virtually all of these classes turn training into a time of fun
and bonding that makes it easy for puppies to learn. If it isn’t
fun and successful for you and your puppy, look for another class.
Many kennel and obedience clubs train for and administer a "good citizen" test for dogs. These tests demonstrate good, basic canine manners and may be administered as part of a class or given at dog shows, Humane Society days, County Fairs, or other community dog activities. Passing the test leads to a title known as the CGC (Canine Good Citizen).
After you get
started, you may become interested in obedience competitions. A good
place to start is at "matches" -- casual and inexpensive practice
events that are sponsored by dog clubs. These events will give you experience
and help you decide whether you’d like to try earning a title
in actual obedience competitions.
