What is Obedience Training?

Obedience training is a type of dog training that specializes in behavior analysis and modification using different visual and verbal cues. Obedience training can include teaching a dog to come to you and sit on command, as well as socializing a dog so that they are comfortable around other humans and animals. Puppy classes are a great way to learn obedience training, although all dogs can benefit from this form of training at any age - especially those that show signs of aggression, fear, or anxiety.

How Obedience Training Works

Obedience training is a covered cost by some pet insurance plans and can be found under “behavioral issues.” Obedience training may be recommended by a veterinarian and can be helpful for dogs with anxiety, distress, fear, or aggression.

Key Takeaways
