DOG PROBLEMS

Training a young dog is part of proper dog care. In the long run you will have a better relationship if you both go to some dog training classes early on. If you have a serious behaviour problem with your dog, it is important to get good advice from somebody who sees the dog in action.  Look for a properly qualified person (see How to choose a good dog trainer), rather than relying on the man next door or the breeder.
