1.01 - Pet Dog Training

Over the past 30 years or so, pet dog training has evolved as a specialized field of dog training. Pet dog training is one of the most complicated, challenging, sometimes frustrating, yet most thoroughly rewarding of endeavors. Pet dog training differs markedly from teaching competition dogs or working dogs, and from training animals for public shows. In all other fields of training, the syllabus is finite, and the handler knows both the rules and questions before the examination. With pet dog training, there are no rules, the questions are unknown, and the syllabus is infinite — comprising all aspects of a dog’s (and owner’s) behavior, temperament, and training.
