Adding a puppy to your family is normally a really enjoyable decision. It is also decision that comes along with a lot of crucial decisions that will need to be made– one being when to begin training your new dog. The sooner you start training your dog with a professional dog trainer in Riverton, the easier it will be to minimize undesirable and unpleasant habits. This is because from the start you are setting up 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 regrettably can be putting them on the wrong path. Much like a child without rules or boundaries, they will push their limits over and over again and can typically be unpleasant to be around. And to no fault of their own, they have just never been taught what is expected of them and what is appropriate and what is not appropriate.
Getting your dog trained correctly is perhaps one of the best things that you might 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 offering mental stimulation; which allows them to use their brain rather than being bored and searching for 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 that it is so crucial to start training your dog early on. And if you are unsure how to train your dog or how to stop unwanted behaviors; then it is always best to talk to a dog trainer in Riverton. They will be able to help you to better understand what your dog may need.
More About Riverton
Riverton is a village in Sangamon County, Illinois, United States. The population was 3,455 at the 2010 census, up from 3,062 in 2000. It is part of the Springfield, Illinois Metropolitan Statistical Area.
Riverton was founded by John Taylor in 1837. Originally named Judy’s Ferry for the ferry crossing the Sangamon River there, then Jamestown, after politician James Shields, the village was successful for about a decade, producing lumber for a planned railroad. When it was discovered that the railroad was badly constructed and unreliable, Jamestown fell into economic distress and the land on which it sat was sold.
The town was sold to Joseph Loose of Maryland, then again to John D. Keedy, a Springfield distiller. Land south of Jamestown was purchased and a distillery was put up. Yet again, the properties were lost, first mortgaged to Jacob Bunn, then given as a claim settlement to Parley L. Howlett, another distiller.
Jamestown was soon renamed Howlett, Shields had fallen from popularity, and a new flour mill and coal mine caused a short-lived boom. Despite their success, most of Howlett was sold to Jacob Bunn to pay off debt. Bunn started selling the lots to the residents, the only owner to do so. After a state requirement was passed preventing communities from being named after people, Howlett was rechristened as Riverton in the 1870s.
In 1876, train robber Jesse James spent a night in Riverton while en route to a bank heist in Minnesota. Al Capone also reportedly used Riverton as one of his hideouts.
