Necessary precautions

There are some other precautions that you need to take before you take your Lab to a training class. They are as follows.

1 Get a clean certificate of health from your vet just to ensure that your doggie is not infested with any parasite such as tics or fleas.

2 Do not give your dog a huge meal just before taking him to a class. For one, a heavy meal will make him slow and sluggish. Secondly, most trainers use treats rather generously to encourage dogs to learn. So let you doggie also have enough space in his stomach to enjoy his doggie treats at school.

3 Practice whatever is taught at doggie school with your pooch at home. This is to ensure that he learns his lessons well.

4 If the trainer asks you to bring any training equipment along for the class, please ensure that you do so.

5 It is good for you to know that taking your dog to a class helps him to socialize well with other dogs too.

If you require any more information about dog trainers, you can contact the Association of Pet Dog Trainers (APDT) P.O. Box 385 Davis, CA 95617800-PET-DOGS.
