It used to seem like once upon a time dogs were just dogs. We grew up, we had dogs and we didn't even think of enrolling in formal training. But times have changed, and now we know that without training, life can be chaotic and unpredictable with our canine companions.

So... why train? What can we expect from training? What different kinds of training are out there?

Appropriate Social Structure

Dogs are at once surprisingly complex and simple; they live in a rich world, but if we satisfy some basic needs they tend to do quite well. Dogs are social creatures, and right after food, water, and shelter, their social life is crucially important. Many of the behavior problems I see are the result of inappropriate social structure.
