Happy Dog Tales

As the owner of a doggie day care, and a dog owner myself, I am frequently asked for advice on dog training. Many of my customers bring their dogs to obedience classes as puppies and then assume that the process is complete, and that their job is done.

Puppy kindergarten and obedience classes are great for socialization and basic training techniques. However, building a solid relationship with your dog is a lifelong commitment, and these classes should be viewed as a first step along the path.

I have found Secrets of a Professional Dog Trainer, by Adam Katz, to be an excellent guide. This book will help you develop the training skills you will need to strengthen the bond between you and your dog. Whether you have just started out with your first puppy or have had dogs your whole life, you will find this book to be a resource you refer back to again and again. Becoming fluent in your dog's language requires effort. Let this book help you. Your dog will thank you.

Hi Dog Stop Day Care,
After searching page after page about basic dog training I ran across your blog Obedient Dogs Are Happy Dogs which caught my attention because, of the amount of valuable and informative information you have. Unfortunately this is not exactly what I was looking for, however I enjoyed reading all your information. Thanks for the reading.

Well done on a nice blog Dog Stop Day Care. My friend actually sent me a link to this blog post and I have to admit, theres some pretty good info here but nothing I could find on dog training course specifically. Although Obedient Dogs Are Happy Dogs is not exactly what I am looking for it certainly got my attention and interest. I was looking for information on dog training course but am glad I stopped by even though this is not a perfect match.
