Taking your dog on nature walks exposes your dog to new sights and smells as well as builds a bond between you.

10 Minutes Per Day. When your dog is ready for formal obedience training, spending 10 minutes per day of undistracted time working on simple obedience commands can yield a dog that is well mannered and a pleasure to be around.

Consistency. All members of the family unit who interact with the dog should be aware of and use the same commands with the dog.
