Puppies, and dogs of all ages, are such a wonderful addition to any family. They provide unconditional loving, comfort and a sense of security, but it is a necessity to ensure that they are well-trained, especially if you plan to bring them with you in public. At Ruffgers Dog University in Naples, Florida, we provide an extremely beneficial competition obedience training course for dogs of all ages. Our well-equipped staff has been training dogs in the Naples area for years and would love the chance to help out your family (and puppy) with obedience classes.

A lot of new puppies experience difficulty paying attention or tend to become easily distracted in public settings. The obedience classes at Ruffgers teach focus and strategy, while building teamwork between you and your pet. This class will benefit the dog/handler team who struggle with staying focused on task in new places. Agility partners will also benefit in building teamwork and a cooperative relationships.

One of our Ruffgers experienced professionals, Sue Bonness, has been successfully competing with her dogs in AKC Obedience since 1975. She is a trained professional and would love to help out anybody interested in obedience and training courses at Ruffgers Dog University. Sue does not believe “Obedience” has to be formal. Her emphasis is on building focus and strong relationships through positive experiences. If you are unsure if your dog may be ready or not for obedience class, Sue would love to give your dog an assessment and more information based on her expertise.

There are many additional benefits from enrolling your puppy into obedience training. For example, in-training puppies will develop interaction skills with other puppies, with people, and in new environments, and puppy socialization has been found to be critical to the psychological health of adult dogs. Also, training provides dogs with the basic good manners we all want—from polite greeting when guests arrive, to walking nicely on the leash and coming when called. This will help to improve the overall behavior of your puppy or dog, which will benefit the entire family and new friends they meet alike!

Overall, obedience training builds a mutual bond, enhances the partnership and enriches the relationship you share with your dog. Here at Ruffgers Dog University, we welcome puppies and dogs of all ages and all skill levels and are here to help you and your furry friends reach their best ability!
