Get Ready for National Train Your Dog Month January 2016!

January, 2016

National Train Your Dog Month!

Since January is the time for New Year’s resolutions, it is the perfect time for dog owners and those who may be considering getting a dog, to learn about the importance of training for their pet. The APDT web site has a wealth of helpful information for pet owners at http://www.apdt.com/petowners. APDT’s other sites, http://www.trainyourdogmonth.com and http://www.mydoghasclass.com have additional tips and resources for dog owners. Free webinars and social media chats will occur during the month of January as well (a full listing can be found at http://www.trainyourdogmonth.com).

Training can begin at birth since your pet is learning every minute of the day.  You have a relatively short window for socialization training and puppy play is key. Read more about the importance of Puppy Socialization at their website.
