January sees the start of National Train Your Dog Month which hopes to raise awareness about the importance of proper training and healthy socialisation to a dog’s well-being.
The month of January was chosen as many people receive puppies and dogs over the Christmas period and sadly many of them find themselves in rescues soon after.
Shelley Wilks, the charities Deputy Chief Executive, said;
“Training can make or break a dog’s chance to stay in a new home. Behaviour like constant barking and being destructive are just some of the issues new owners can struggle to control and manage and this ultimately can affect the bond between dog and owner.”
“But we believe that with the right training and persistence, these behavioural issues can be resolved and that a happy home life will soon follow. Not only does proper training and socialisation help your dog to become well mannered, but it also creates a life-long bond between you both and is lots of fun!”
“We hope that the more people who are educated on how to train their dog correctly will ultimately lead to fewer dogs coming into their rescue and rescues across the UK, which is one of our main goals as a charity.”
