Make Dog Training a Part of Everyday Life.
Train Your Dog Month: January 2011
The Association of Pet Dog Trainers believes it is long overdue to dedicate a month where we can bring awareness to the importance of socialization and training, and most of all, to inform the public that training your dog can be easy and fun! We selected January as the perfect month because so many dogs and puppies are adopted or purchased from breeders and brought home during the winter holidays. Our desire is to help these new pet parents start off the new year right with their newest family member.
The APDT is planning a variety of events in January 2011 to celebrate National Train Your Dog Month. We want dog owners to see how simple and fun training can be, and how patience, consistency and a deeper understanding of a dog’s behavior can lead to happier, healthier and harmonious households. It’s our goal to promote using training methods that are kind, gentle and have an emphasis on building a relationship with your dog.
Tthe APDT has over 5,000 members who are willing and able to assist dog owners who need help with their dogs. We want dog owners everywhere to know that there are solutions to help dogs with behavior problems and there are alternatives to try before giving up your dog.
