How Dogs Learn

Dogs are creatures of habit. They learn through repetition and consistency, (doing it the same way every time). Dogs are social animals and they see you as their pack or family.

When training your dog always remember that dogs don’t learn sentences. They learn one word commands by tone inflections. We speak to them like they understand and they are attentive and giving you a lending ear at anytime but they do not understand every word. They are fully capable of learning thousands of one or two word commands.
