I’m a dog lover who believes that every dog owners should train their dogs if they truly love and care for them. Because I believe that dog training gives dogs a happier and healthier life. Not to mention, it also gives their owner a trouble-free life long companion.
Well, maybe you do know that dog training is important, but what resources are available to help train your dog?
“Online and it’s free!” This thought should come to most dog owners instantaneously.
Yeah, you’re not wrong! That statement is definitely right to a certain extent. Allow me to explain further:
1. Yes. I agree that there are valuable free information online. But do you have the time to scan through hundreds of thousands of web site out there to find one valuable or useful dog training tip?
And since you are looking for dog training advice yourself, are you the one to judge if this dog training tip is useful or even helpful??
2. Yes. Most resources are free on the internet, but are these resources reliable? Or trustworthy?
Ask yourself: Are you learning from experts who knows everything about dog training or from novice dog owners who publish their dog training experience online? Or maybe you simply have not idea who you are learning from.
3. No doubt there are “good” dog trainers who offer valuable and good dog training materials online. But are they revealing everything they know?
Again ask yourself: If they are “real” dog trainers who offer their dog training services to dog owners. Are these people willing to reveal everything that they know online free and put their business at risk?
Certainly not for me or any sane person! Can you imagine KFC or Cheesecake Factory putting their recipes online?
I have no doubts or whatsoever that you can find quality dog training sites online, but you do need a considerable amount of time to find them and test them over time.
For example, how would you know if an online recipe is good? You try cooking with the recipe right? Well, you use the recipe and the food turns out to be rubbish! You figure that the recipe is lousy and went on to look for another one.
This process can go on and on. Unless you know that you have a good recipe on hand, you won’t figure out that it’s actually your cooking technique that sucks! The same thing applies to online dog training tips.
If you want to spend more quality time with your dog rather than searching for “useful” dog training resources online, the solution is actually simple: Buy a good dog training book.
Do what you have been doing all along. Learn from someone whom everybody learns from – just like going to school and learning from your teachers. In this instance, you just buy a proven dog training book that has been used by thousands of other dog owners.
It’s not difficult to make a wise decision. I hope you know what it is after reading this article.
