Train Your Dog to do Tricks
January is the official start of National Train Your Dog Month, and as much as you love your dog, sometimes it can feel like your dog is incapable of learning any tricks. While it may feel impossible at times, with the right techniques and proper amount of practice just about any dog can learn. Committing yourself to teaching your dog some tricks is a great New Year’s resolution, but it’s also a fun bonding experience for you and your dog throughout the year. Watch the following American Kennel Club videos to learn some simple techniques that make it possible for any dog to learn tricks.
