Dogs have a great affinity for humans—they have an uncanny, almost intuitive understanding of our moods. However, dogs are not born knowing how to live with us. They inherit a set of species-specific behaviors that oftentimes clash with how we want them to behave in our houses and in our lives. This is where training comes in. Training your dog means you give him the tools to understand what behaviors are acceptable as the family dog.
