As anyone who has barebones knowledge of Western history can tell you, the Industrial Revolution introduced the age of mass production – and with it, the decreasing need of relying on human and pup labour. In other words, many working breeds are now essentially out of a job and have been relegated to simply pet status!
This, of course, doesn’t mean that they have now adjusted to our modern lifestyles as a result. Many pups are still working pups in various faculties, and their breed heritage still gives them great intelligence and lots of energy to work with. But what happens when you have one of these working pups living in your house as a pet?
Why, train them just like this Mom is doing with her German Shepherd pup, of course! This gives a pup something to work towards, which fulfills their mental stimulation requirements and keeps them happy. Not to mention that training sessions are great bonding times too!
