When most pet owners think about obedience training for their dog, they're almost always thinking about hiring an outside person to teach man's best friend exactly how to act and, thus, spending a small fortune in the process.
But does training your pup really have to equate to paying out the nose for some of the simplest commands? Chances are, dog experts probably are going to answer that question with a resounding "yes." Their livelihood depends on their credibility, more specifically how well they can help a prospective client transform an unruly dog into the model pet.
And yes, experts under the pet obedience banner are equal parts competent and patient for all the training they do with dogs, but that doesn't mean you can't handle a little of the at home training at home on your own, devoid of opening your checkbook multiple times and for ridiculously high amounts.
Taking the training in your own hands is something you can easily do to start and, of course, if it becomes too much to handle you can call in your backup plan and hire someone who is more adept at dog schooling than you are.
But in the meantime, why not at least give it a chance on your own first?
