Find the best dog training lessons, classes, and instructors at HeyKiki and learn how to train dogs. Dog training is the process of teaching a dog to perform certain skills or behaviors, sometimes in response to certain commands. Dogs can be trained for general obedience to their owners, or for specific roles in law enforcement, military, search and rescue operations. Dogs are also used in civilian service roles, providing assistance to people with disabilities, hunting, herding, and for entertainment purposes. Professional dog trainers can not only train dogs, but teach the dogs' owners best practices and ways to reinforce the techniques taught to the animal.
