A roundup of videos for curbing bad behaviour and teaching new tricks

Spending a lot more time at home also means we're getting a lot more quality time with our canines these days. But with the dog parks closed, and so many of us adjusting to a new home life with doggos underfoot, having a 'good boy' seems to matter more than ever! So if your furry bff is ready to (or needs to!) learn a new trick, or "simply obey better", we've got just the thing. We rounded up all our dog training videos led by certified dog trainer, Danielle Hodges. Here are 11 tutorials to help you teach them new skills, or curb some of that behaviour while you and your dog(s) shelter together.
