A well-trained dog is a joy to live with. It understands what is expected of it, and will listen to commands and orders, rather than chewing carpet and scratching doors. Good training also benefits your dog. You can use training and behavioral techniques to help combat separation anxiety, and it will improve the relationship between you and your pup.
