Helping make your best friend, even better
January is APDT's National Train Your Dog Month - a time to bring awareness to the importance of socialization and training, and most of all, to help you understand that training your dog can be easy and fun! There are two things you'll hear us say often at Dogma:
- "Training should be fun!"
- "Dogs are family."
To ensure you feel the same, for the month of January, we are going to break down the basic principles of dog training. Follow along for free resources and fun ways to ensure you can help your dog integrate successfully into your family and our busy human world.
We will be updating this page weekly with new webinars, promotions and contests. Enter each weekly contest for your chance to win the Grand Prize - a basket full of dog training goodies and a $100 Dogma gift certificate to use for any of our training services!
We know that the more people understand about their canine family members, the better our dog's lives will be. When dogs understand what is expected of them, and their physical and mental needs are being met, they live happier, stress-free lives. And when that happens, we enjoy our time together more and they can participate in more day-to-day activities with us.
For Train Your Dog Month, we will be releasing a free webinar each week! Members, you will get additional training videos weekly that dive deep into some core concepts to help further your dog's training.
