How can a "cupcake" dog benefit from training? 🎂 I've posted about Porkchop, this (adoptable!) pittie sweetheart and his lack of serious behavioral issues. You may wonder why he's even here to train at all, if he isn't reactive on walks, doesn't guard resources, or use his size to dominate humans. But obedience training encompasses so much more than controlling these more troubling behavioral issues. When we teach our dogs to respect our leadership and practice daily impulse control, we're shaping a healthier, calmer dog. This is why training is important for all dogs, but especially young ones like Porkchop who is prone to excitement, which leads to jumping antics and mouthing. He's been quick to learn, however, and responds best to firm leadership, with both corrections and praise. He's under a year, cute and loving as can be, and is in the process of being fully obedience trained! Check out his profile with @rocketdogrescue!
