We love working with our dogs on a daily basis and as guide dog puppy raisers one of the things we continue to do with our pups is dog obedience training. Since I picked up my first guide dog puppy, Stetson almost five years ago I’ve been constantly working on dog obedience training with each and every guide dog trainee.
Don’t get me wrong, dog obedience training isn’t the only thing we work on. Our guide dogs have to work constantly on obedience, but my two pet dogs, Linus and Stetson also get to work on K9 Nosework Training (Sniffer Training), Therapy Dog Training, Trick Training, Agility Training, and many other wonderful canine activities.
However, today we are going to discuss dog obedience training and it’s importance to our guide dog puppies.
