There are three main categories of dog training:
- Obedience - Teaching fundamental rules and manners
- Behavior Modification - Solving mild to severe behavior problems
- Agility - Having fun, entering competitions, entertaining friends and family
In obedience classes or training programs, your dog learns commands like "Sit", "Come Here" and "Stay".
Similar to therapy for people, behavior modification addresses problem behaviors such as aggression, anxiety and fear.
Agility, Tricks and Games
Similar to extracurricular or intramural sports, agility training is a fun and productive way to work with your dog on a regular basis.
