If your dog is trained, he will: Allow you to run your hand over his body to check for injury, illness or fleas and to give him the appropriate medication Be well mannered, so you can let him lose among your friends and family. This only means that you hardly ever supervise him, less boredom for him and fewer chances of ever getting into mischief If you spend the maximum amount of time with your dog, you’re apt to see the slightest change in him such as a cough, cold, limp or loss of appetite.
This could result in early or timely medical help and a prevention of serious problems Prefer to stay near you and listen to your instructions and praise. In so doing, he will remain safe with you Walk or run with you on a leash without pulling, dragging or strangling, so you and your dog can exercise as much as possible and spend more time together Not swallow dangerous objects because he will know what you mean when you say “drop it” and “leave it alone.”
You can also go on to teach him his physical boundaries such as the yard gate, the kitchen stove or heaters. Besides, you will also have to teach him all the dangerous places he must never enter unsupervised Sit when you tell him to and realize that this command spells safety for him. Be a healthier dog, as training can help prevent tragedy and foster a better relationship with him Be a happier dog because he can enjoy the freedom other untrained dogs cannot enjoy, particularly in restricted places such as stores where only well trained dogs can enter
Benefits of training your Beagle:
The benefits of training are many and include the following: You are your dog’s leader and mentor: Once you train your pet, the bond between you and him is strengthened. Not only does it build communication between master and pet, but it also fosters a better understanding and mutual respect, besides also subtly and effectively demonstrating to him that you are the leader of the pack, or the “Alpha.” But if your pet doesn’t recognize you as his leader, you’re in big trouble, particularly if he’s unmannerly or domineering or just a wee bit snappy.
Training can keep him alive and well:
If you give your dog obedience training, you will develop sufficient voice control to prevent any tragedy with your pet dog. Imagine a situation when your dog shrugs off his collar in the middle of a busy street. All you will have to do to prevent any harm come to him is to heel him across the road and then ordered to sit while you replace his collar. Alternatively, if one of your family leaves the front door open and your dog makes his escape, you can call him back home by using the recall command that he has learnt.
You have a more responsive pet:
Training makes your pet more responsive. It also enables you to have quick and prompt control over your dog’s behavior, so in an emergency situation obedience training can actually save his life. In fact, training can save the vast numbers of dogs who ultimately end up in animal shelters. And if a dog is trained, he stands a better chance of being adopted sooner than an untrained dog. Data shows that those pups who are socialized and trained early in life are less likely to end up destroyed by the time they are three years of age than their untrained peers.
Well behaved pets are welcome everywhere:
If your pet is obedience trained, he can go just anywhere you go without your worrying if he can hold his own there. He will never cause you any embarrassment or be a nuisance but display good manners whether at home when you have guests over or out in a crowd.
Build a lifelong relationship of trust:
Few dog owners realize that by training their pets, they are actually investing in a lifelong relationship based on confidence, trust and friendship. In fact, it’s a surefire way of communicating with your dog and of sharing a common language. The more you teach or train him, the more you will get out of your special friendship as this will make him a better friend, more confident and secure and trusting too.
