Adding a pet dog to your household is normally a very amazing choice. It is also a choice that involves quite a few important decisions that will need to be made– one being when to start training your new dog. The sooner you start training your dog with a professional dog trainer in Freeport, the easier it will be to stop undesirable and unpleasant behaviors. This is because from the beginning you are setting clear boundaries and rules for your dog to abide by. By not training your dog, you are not doing any favors by your dog and sadly can possibly be putting them on the wrong path. Just like a child without rules or boundaries, they will push their limits repeatedly again and can usually be unpleasant to be around. And to no fault of their own, they have just never been shown what is expected of them and what is ok and what is not appropriate.
Having your dog trained properly is perhaps one of the best things that you can do for him or her. Not only do they respond to the commands that you give, but they also often tend to be far happier, and more fulfilled dogs compared to dogs that are not. This is because you are supplying mental stimulation; which allows them to use their brain instead of becoming bored and seeking ways to amuse themselves. Trained dogs are also less likely to end being re-homed, euthanized, or surrendered to a shelter; which is the reason why it is so vital to start training your dog early. And if you don’t know how to train your dog or how to stop problem behaviors; then it is always best to speak to a professional dog trainer in Freeport. They’ll be able to help you to better understand what your dog may need.
More About Freeport
Freeport is the county seat and largest city of Stephenson County, Illinois. The population was 25,638 at the 2010 census, and the mayor of Freeport is Jodi Miller, elected in 2017. Freeport is known for hosting the second Lincoln-Douglas debate of 1858, and as “Pretzel City, USA”, due to the convoluted manner in which the streets were laid out in its early history. Freeport High School’s mascot is the Pretzel to honor this unique heritage.
The community was originally called Winneshiek. When it was incorporated, the new municipality took its name from the generosity of Tutty Baker, who was credited with running a “free port” on the Pecatonica River. The name “Winneshiek” was later adopted, and is preserved to this day, by the Freeport Community Theatre Group.
