DOG TRAINING STATISTICS
A well trained dog is by far a happier dog! Why? Because a trained dog requires fewer restrictions. The more reliable the dog, the more freedom he is given. Also, he receives more attention and interaction from family members,
visitors, and passers-by, than does the ill-mannered dog.
