They are big or small, purebred or mongrel, short-haired or long-haired. A dog is both your pet and a loyal friend, and you simply must adore it. In the beginning, there is always a dilemma whether to take the dog for a pet because it is a big commitment and responsibility. Of course, the whole family has to agree with that.
Once you bring this little furry creature to your home, there’s no turning back. You will be no longer able to separate from it. Day after day, you’ll become better friends. It is very important that your pet is well trained. Dog training starts from the moment when it walks into your home. It is not a serious training, but some basic home education which involves learning where to pee, what should and what should not nibble, etc. You should try to establish as good contact with the dog as possible.
Find a Professional Trainer
Basics of the training lie in the fact that the dog from the beginning learns how to execute a given command of a particular action, and how to engage in the repetition of given commands. Long repetition creates habit and dog mechanically performs a specific action for given command. Dressage is completed when the dog at the given command executes the right actions that are planned for that command and always does them without any mistake.
If you are unable to train the dog on your own, then you will need a help of a professional trainer. Dog training is a complicated work, and it’s hard to become a good trainer. The dog trainer must know the psychology of a dog, be very patient while working with dogs, and possess a great sense of observation. Dog obedience training refers to mechanically learned attitudes and actions of dogs that are connected with their proper handling and movement while performing dressage.
Can You Take Your Pet to a Restaurant?
As long as your dog does not learn everything it needs to learn, you cannot leave it alone at home. Taking your dog everywhere you go can sometimes be a problem. If you want to have lunch or dinner at a restaurant with your family, you will have a problem bringing your dog there because it is not allowed to bring pets to all restaurants. Only restaurants and cafés labeled in the doorway as “pet-friendly” allow that. Bringing a dog to such restaurants is allowed as long as your dog behaves in a normal way following its dressage and does not bother other guests.
Apartments, houses, courtyards, and parks are no longer the only places where dogs can enjoy spending time with their owners, their dog friends, and other people; now they can do that in the restaurants as well. There are restaurants open for all kinds of dogs and cats, both small and large. Visitors who come to these restaurants can expect that many people come with their pets and that they will do that every day. Furthermore, many employees have four-legged friends too.
It seems that pets know how to behave in restaurants, mainly because there is no discomfort with this type of guests, even though it sometimes happens that the dog breaks free from the leash and takes a walk around the restaurant. People react positively to pets at the tables around them. Everyone needs to get used to the fact that dogs are an integral part of people’s lives and that we need to change a little bit the rules and adjust them to fit their needs as well.
