Dog Training Miami – Tip of the Day

(Part 1 0f 4)

One pet peeve I hear too often is, “I don’t want to adopt a dog I want to buy one from a breeder [most breeders are puppy mills]. If I rescue or adopt a dog I will have to train them and they will have behavior problems.”

 

Of course the implication is that if you buy a dog you will not have to train them and they won’t have behavior problems – wrong. If you rescue a dog at any age or buy a dog at any age it is incumbent upon you to educate yourself and your new dog family member!  It does not matter where they came from, age, gender or breed. All sentient beings are individuals with their own temperaments, personalities and behavior quirks.

 

Both the science of medicine and the science of behavior (ethology) cannot be ignored or minimized because you bought rather than adopted a dog. It is just as ridiculous to think that you will not have to take your bought dog to a veterinarian as it is to think that you won’t have to provide education and dog training for them. The notion that you don’t need to bring your bought dog to a trainer or behavior specialist but you will your adopted/rescued one is hogwash!

 

You need to provide for an animal in your care in a humane, ethical, healthy manner. Animals of all species need to be educated (human and non-human) in a force free intelligent way. This axiom is a universal trait we all share. If you do not plan on educating your dog or family, maybe you should get an inanimate robot or toy instead.

 

Adopt, foster, rescue, donate, volunteer, sponsor, don’t shop!

 

Jeremy Bentham

“The question is not, Can they reason? nor, Can they talk? but, Can they suffer?”
