Top 5 Commands I Teach and What They Do for You - Dog Training

dog training utah salt lake city

It took me about 15 minutes to pound this out.  I wanted everyone to know what top 5 commands I teach and the benefits of each.  

I could say this about each command: Dogs CRAVE structure.  They LOVE to be given a job.  It gives a dog peace of mind when they know WHAT they are supposed to do...WHEN they are supposed to do it...and for HOW LONG they need to hold the command.  

All of these commands reduce anxiety, curb (most) aggression and enable two-way communication between you and your dog.  

Read this and then visit my webpage!  Thanks!
