The best place to start when training a dog is a behavior or obedience class. A trained person will teach you how to get your dog to do basic commands like sit, stay, come, and lay down. There are so many websites that will help you with training your dog, which means the internet is also a great place to go to for improving behavior. To find a list of trainers and classes, just open the phone book and look in the yellow pages to find what you need. A vet can also help you find obedience classes and dog trainers, so asking them where to look and who’s the best is very convenient.
