Top 10 Dog Training DVDs Every Dog Owners Should Watch

Being a knowledgeable dog owner makes all the difference in the world when it comes dealing with any behavioral or training issues that may arise throughout the life of your dog. Like humans, dogs change as they get older. Your once friendly puppy may develop a fear of people or dogs. Your aging dog may go deaf and no longer be able to respond to your verbal cues. A dog may bite a child for the first time seemingly “out of the blue” (though it never it is). The more you know about dog behavior and training, the better you can handle situations like these. The following are 10 must-watch dog training DVDs for all dog owners that will make the life you share with your dog easier and more pleasant.
