The DogSmith, America’s Dog Training, Pet Care, Dog Walking, and Pet Nutrition Franchise, encourages all dog owners to participate in the Association of Pet Dog Trainers National Dog Training Month.

January 2010: The Association of Pet Dog Trainers (APDT) has designated January as the national “train your dog” month to promote the benefits of positive training methods and socialization as a way to create a healthy, long-lasting relationship between dogs and their owners.

Hundreds of thousands of dogs are turned in to animal shelters every year because their owners did not know how to deal with behavior problems that could have been easily fixed. DogSmith Franchise Services  joins with the APDT in this important mission because a “trained dog is a retained dog” and with so many families starting out the new year with four legged additions to their family, The DogSmith wants to help new pet parents start off the year in the best way possible.

By training your family dog using modern, scientifically based, positive methods, such as those taught by The DogSmith, you can establish an exceptional bond with your non-human family members allowing actual communication to take place.  And the training is fun and easy.  The DogSmith emphasizes methods that are kind, gentle and  have a positive impact on building a trusting relationship with your dog.

The DogSmith offers a comprehensive variety of training and pet care plans to fit every budget and lifestyle. From private 1-on-1 training lessons, Group Classes and “Latch Key” Training (in your home with your dog while you are at work), there is a suitable program for every dog. Even those dogs whose owners are too busy but are still committed to their dog’s education can enroll in the popular DogSmith “board and train” program.

 In addition, The DogSmith website provides a variety of free dog training e-books available for download as well as information on how to contact your  local DogSmith. Visit and start communicating with your furry best friend.
