Well-socialized and well-trained pets are happy pets. Spending time training, exercising and socializing your dog or cat is one of the most important gifts you can give to your family member and will help you form a strong bond together. Using positive reinforcement like praising, giving treats and positive attention will help your pet learn the good behavior.
