Taking your dog for a nice day out can be a very exciting time for him and also for yourself. There are many good places where you can take your pet for a walk or stroll during the day. One of the most ideal places would be the dog park. If you want your dog to fully enjoy the park without getting himself or anyone hurt, it is essential that he is well trained and trustworthy enough to be let off his leash. That way, you don’t have to worry all the time of the possible dangers that can happen during the park visit.
Before letting your pet off his leash, make sure that he can follow basic obedience commands such as “come”. This command is perhaps the most essential as it allows you to get his full attention when he gets a little bit distracted with certain things. So, before visiting the park, ensure that your pet is very familiar and obedient to such command.
As a responsible and law abiding pet owner, it is always your duty to ensure that your pet is safe and well mannered even if he is let out from his leash in public places such as the dog park. Since you cannot always control what the other dogs do within the park, at least you have better control over your pet when crisp action is needed.
Teaching your pet how to respond well and quickly with “come” command will save you and himself from a lot of trouble. Should your pet doesn’t follow when given such command, further training should be instilled which is provided by Bed & Biscuit Dog Training until he does so. Off leash training is a challenge to both pet owners and dog trainers. If all traditional training tools and means fail, an electronic dog collar can be very helpful. Contrary to the myth that an electronic dog collar can harm pets, it is actually by far a very effective and safe equipment to use for off leash pet training. Not only that, it is also very easy to use that even pet owners can use it by following the manual’s instructions carefully.
If it will be your pet’s first time to be off the leash to the park, it is very critical to pick out the right dog park for him. Make sure to choose a dog park that is safe for dogs as well as for people. Avoid parks that are not maintained well such as those with broken toys, muddy grounds, tall weeds, and the likes.
