I see it in our two dogs: when they get exercise, they are happier, calmer, more obedient, less barky pups. We received dog training to facilitate the writing of this and other dog articles.Since Sit Means Sit Dog Training, our dogs went from unruly pets to polite pooches. This has led us to spend more time them on walks/runs with them and socializing our dogs. What an awesome benefit!
