A level of obedience training must be achieved to have a good relationship with your dog. If you are a novice owner, you will want to seek out a basic obedience class or trainer to help educate you on how to train your dog.


If you wish to trial in obedience it is recommended that you find an Obedience Club in your area that will mentor you to be successful competitor. 


If there isn't a club accessible locally then it is recommended to Youtube videos that can demonstrate what will be expected in a trial and then scout out obedience dog shows to further your education.
