It is a question many pet owners face: does my dog need some obedience training? “Yes, I recommend obedience training for all dogs, because not only does it help provide basic obedience and command recognition, it also helps bolster basic interactions between people and their pets,” said Dr. Stacy Eckman, lecturer at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences (CVM). Eckman suggests that all dogs are good candidates for training school.
