Five million puppies are born each year in need of love, patience and round-the-clock training. And their owners know all too well that training issues can arise at any time. Now puppy owners will find expert training guidance they need right at their fingertips.
Those with access to podcasting devices can download a series of free puppy care and training videos for immediate help. The videos are approximately two minutes in length and cover such topics as crate training, house training, biting and chewing, barking and simple commands such as “sit,” “off,” “stay” and “heel.”
Puppy owners can download select videos on iTunes; this interactive Web-based guide provides a comprehensive selection of articles and videos on puppy training, nutrition and health.
Owners who have access to this virtual training library can reap the benefits of a well-behaved, well-socialized dog. The videos offer many other advantages:
* Take me with you: According to the Association of Pet Products Manufacturers, 40 million pets will travel with their owners in 2006. This has its unique challenges, especially when the pet in question is a puppy being trained. But there’s no need to stay tethered to home base when training guidance is at your fingertips.
* Owner see, puppy do: Reading about training techniques and seeing them in action are two different experiences. With video training, owners view step-by-step training instructions, which make the methods as clear and useful as possible.
* Whenever, wherever: A busy life is a fact of life for most Americans, which can make it a challenge for puppy owners to follow a consistent, time-consuming training routine and stay educated about their puppies’ needs. Having access to a virtual puppy care library gives owners an opportunity to review proper training techniques and other pertinent information about their puppies when it’s convenient for them.
