A quick search on “dog training” will fill pages and pages with tips, tricks, and lessons learned from those who have gone through dog training with their pups. There are a few common myths that seems to prevail:

  • You can’t teach an old dog new tricks. Not true! Dogs of any age can learn with some patience. It is easiest to train a dog when they’re young, but the ability to learn doesn’t go away as they age.
  • If your dog destroys things when you’re gone, s/he is misbehaving. Your dog may be suffering from separation anxiety and not realize that this behavior is bad. Working with a trainer can help correct poor behavior when separated.
  • A growling dog = trouble. Not necessarily for you, but your dog might sense troubles. Dogs may growl when they’re angry, but they may also be scared.
  • Your dog is stubborn or stupid if s/he doesn’t listen to you. Oh, no! Dogs are very intelligent, but they may not be comprehending the command that you’re giving. Formal training, like that that Circle K9 offers, ensures that you and your dog are properly communicating.
