Celebrity animal trainer, Joel Silverman joined Fox 17's Brody Carter for a special interview about how to train your dog in the upcoming year.

Silverman said it's never too late to get your dog on-board with healthy behavioral trends, saying 2021 is the perfect time to set resolutions for your pet.

Silverman says positive re-enforcement is your primary focus when training your dog. One of the best places to start is teaching simple commands: "stay," "Drop," "Come," & "Down." If your dog is overweight, he says to use measuring cups for each meal, and to avoid cheap food as they sometimes carry preservatives and dyes that are harmful to pets.

He advocates Bil-Jac food for your pet and encourages you to check out his website for additional consultation.
