    Imagine how you would look and feel if you never bathed, brushed your hair, or trimmed your nails. To be healthy and happy, your companion animal needs basic grooming, too.

Why Should You Train Your Dog?

A) So he'll listen when you tell him to do something
B) So you can take him wherever you go
C) So you can show off all kinds of neat tricks to your friends
D) So you can enter fun competitions and maybe even win
E) ALL OF THE ABOVE

Training is essential to having a good relationship with your dog. It's not just about tricks and showing off: it's about communicating with your pet so both of you are happier.

Sadly, many pets are relinquished every year for behavior problems. These problems can usually be fixed if people would take some time to train their dog. Remember, dogs don't know how you want them to act, you have to teach them!
