Covering dog obedience in a single blog post is, of course impossible! But i do have some ideas of the various methods, and where to go to learn more.
The first training of your dog begins when he or she is still a puppy. Getting your dog off to a good start is much easier than working on breaking bad habits later on. Of course, one of the earliest areas to address is housebreaking your dog. There is a lot of information on how to do this, and I think it is a great idea to learn the ropes before you bring your new pup home!
Training your dog using the reward system instead of punishing him should be foremost. You want your dog to be your lifelong friend, not a frustrated, cowering and aggressive enemy. Dog obedience is a way to ensure your canine friend remains so for many happy years!
