January isn't just the start of the new year, but it's also the start of National Train Your Dog month. However, there does not need to be an entire month devoted to training your dog. Training is an on-going bond between you and our dog! Don't just do so during a specific month!
Just like us, dogs never stop learning. They are an amazing creature with feelings, thoughts and actions, just like us!
Can they talk, like we can, of course not, but they "talk" with their body language. You just have to stop and listen. You need listen with your eyes, not your ears.
Walking your dog is a training experience. Having guests over is a training experience. New significant other in your life is a training experience. Every day things are training experiences for your dog.
So...don't keep up with the Joneses and don't just have one specific month devoted to training your dog! They'll thank you!
