January is Train Your Dog Month

Dog Training Down Stay Position

January is here, and that mean it is once again National Train Your Dog Month. Presented by the Association of Pet Dog Trainers (APDT), National Train Your Dog Month aims to raise awareness to the public about the importance of proper dog training and socialization. The APDT chose January because so many people get new dogs or puppies during the winter holidays. This month is the time to get started with a training program for the life of that dog.

Training your dog does not have to be a chore. Actually, it can be a lot of fun for both you and your dog. Plus, it helps create and strengthen the bond between the two of you. In honor of National Train Your Dog Month, I have created a step-by-step guide to the essentials of dog training. Whether you are new to dog ownership, or just need a refresher course, everything you need to know is there. Happy training!
