Dog clubs have been around almost as long as there have been dogs. And that is for good reason. There are a lot of benefits of getting together with other people and learn about how to best work with their canines.
For new owners, it’s the best place to learn the basics, details, and many tricks that come with a dog. And that steepens the learning curve in a major way.
If you are already experienced you will get the benefit of learning from other experienced dog owners. You get to help people that just got their own puppy. And that is often a good way to learn more about these awesome furry friends.
