Just like humans, dogs can always learn something new. From puppy to adult, positive learning with positive reinforcement is so important. Make learning/training fun for you and your dog. Ask OAHS for a free list of places holding dog training classes. Sure, you can train your dog on your own but learning in a classroom with other dogs and owners can really be very beneficial. Not only do training classes provide a safe environment to practice, dogs learn to listen to their owner despite the distractions of other dogs and people. Besides spending quality time together and increasing the human animal bond, attending a class is a great way to meet new friends.
