You don’t have to be frustrated because your dog or puppy is disobedient.

In this article I will talk about the advantages of having a really well trained k9.

One of the most ovious reasons are of course that your dog just listens to you when you give them commands.
I want to tell you a story of one of my friends that a very cute Jack Russell dog that she just loved to bits.
Luckilly for her she had Jacky trained so that she would respond to commands.

One day she had friends over for supper and when they decided to leave the Fox Terrier ran outside towards the road which are always packed with traffic.
Luckily she could just call her dog and the dog immediatley responded to her command and got back into the house.
So one can actually say having a well trained dog can save their life.

Another really big advantage of having a obedient pet is that going for walks and exercising together is just nice and easy.
I am sure all you reading this article have experienced or seen people that just can’t control their dogs when they fo for a walk.

So what happens at the end of the day – The dog just does not get the needed exercise they need to healtyh and happy.
The owners then need to get somebody to walk their dogs if they can get somebody that can do it.
If a dog does not get their weekly walks they tend to be furstrated than can have other negative effects like constant barking or biting issues.

A Well trained best friend will just get along so much better with all of your family and friends.
I have seen countless times when visiting people with dogs that they need to take their dogs outside or put them in a room when people come and visit because they are not trained at all.

You know those dogs that can’t stop barking or jumping up against you that can be really annoying and actually dangerous especially if it is a bigger type of do breed.

Don’t even get my started on dogs that are not well potty trained.
Anybody that ever had a dog knows how bad it can be when it uses the house as their toilet and do not want to go outside.

Why is it so good to have a dog?

These are just a few of the things I have noticed while being a dog owner pretty much all of my life

Dogs have always had a positive effect on my emotional health
Sometimes you just really have a terrible day where things just don’t work out the way you want it to.
Examples are: Stuck in traffic and then getting late to work.
The stress of work project deadlines
And so many more of course

The nicest thing for me is when I get home is to see my dog and just to see how happy she is to see me again after I have been away at work for the whole day

One of the best things to having a dog is it provides extra security.
As we all know dogs have a hearing so much better compared to humans.
So they alert us when they hear something or somebody that we don’t even know about

Having a dog has forced me to do more exercise which has helped me to lose weight and just feel better about myself in general.
Not only have I been walking more but also started running on a regular basis and just started doing cycling.
All because I just started walking my dog I started getting fitter and started to get more energy.

My dog provides so much entertainment and laughter which in turn lowers my blood pressure.
Because according to research a decent amount of laughter really does help reduce stress and blood pressure.
Which in turn make you feel more relaxed.

Please remember to look well after your dogs and take them for their regular walks and visits to the vet.
If possible have your dog or puppy trained which will make your life so much easier in the long run.
