EverythingDogBlog #114: If it’s January, it must be Train Your Dog Month! Get your new pup or dog off to a great start!
Brought to you by the Association of Professional Dog Trainers (APDT, of which I am a proud member), the 4th annual National Train Your Dog Month (TYDM) is off to a great start with this logo. According to CEO Mychelle Blake, APDT wanted a logo that is “very simple and easily identifiable as [being] dog related, to anyone, since TYDM is primarily an event to educate the public.”
What better month to do this than January, soon after Christmas pups and dogs arrive?
The emphasis for Train Your Dog Month is on the family dog and everyday manners with contests, free webinars for the public, and “tips and tricks” for teaching the basics: sit, down, stay, wait, come, and loose-leash-walking (LLW).
In addition Facebook chats for the public will focus on these topics to help promote taking your dog to a basic training class (no matter what his age) and understanding how your life with your dog can become better by his knowing these behaviors.
