If there's one thing your dog needs in life, it's a 'purpose', or a 'job'. Dogs enjoy earning their treats, and they thrive when they know what's expected of them. That's where obedience training comes in. If you're looking for the best dog training services in Newtown Square, PA, here's some advice on the options available at On-Command Canine Training, and a look at why training is so important. 

Why dog training is important

Your dog is a crucial part of your family, and just like the rest of us, they need to learn the rules! Here are three reasons why dog training helps your pet and supports your entire family. 

It's a bonding experience

Dog training helps you and your dog spend quality time together. It strengthens the bond between you, and it helps you create fun family memories.

Your dog feels accomplished

Dogs love having something to do, and they enjoy feeling 'useful'. Dog training gives your dog some much-needed mental stimulation and a confidence boost. 

You're in control

Dog training puts you in control. You can take your dog wherever you want, whether it's the park or the beach, knowing that he or she will respond to your commands and stay safe. The best dog training services support your dog's well-being and reinforce your status as 'head' of the pack!

Training packages available 

Your dog is never too young or too old to learn the basics – here's what we can offer you at On-Command Canine Training. 

Safety first 

The best dog training services prioritize your dog's overall well-being and safety. Whichever service you choose, we always start with basic commands, including:

  • Touch
  • Sit
  • Down
  • Watch

We teach the basics first because they keep your dog predictable. Basic commands protect dogs from dangerous situations, such as darting across a busy freeway, or approaching strangers.

A private session lets me assess your dog's specific needs. Together, we can work out a plan for going forward if your dog needs extra training. 

Cues we work on: 

  • Touch

  • Watch
