Training and Raising a Dog in Nebraska

Dogs have brought joy to thousands of homes all over the world. They provide companionship to people old and young and are truly magnificent animals. Owning a dog is a great responsibility. A lot of time and effort go into properly raising and training a dog. Learn more about owning a dog in Nebraska and the behavior that is required and expected of a trained canine.

Nebraska has a set of laws that govern dog owners throughout each of the districts within the state. For example, in Omaha, the law states that:

  • Homeowners can own three dogs and five cats.
  • Dogs must have a rabies vaccination and be re-vaccinated every three years.
  • Stray animals must be taken in within three days and kept for a period of 30 days for a person to be considered an owner.
  • Owners must clean up after their pets.
  • Dogs must be confined by a fence or put on a leash.
  • Dogs cannot be tied up outside for more than 15 minutes at a time (unless an adult is present).
  • It is illegal to pit dogs against each other and have them fight.
  • Dogs may not be transported in open pickup truck beds.
  • It is illegal for dogs to bark uninterrupted.
  • If you own a specific breed or mix of these breeds, your dog must wear a muzzle in public: pit bull, American Staffordshire terrier, Staffordshire bull terrier, American bulldog.

Look online to read a full list of the laws governing dog owners across Nebraska. Local governments have set these laws so that you and your dog can live a happy life. In order to comply with these laws, it is important to properly train your dog.

Properly training your dog will allow both of you to live a long and happy life together. It is important to start with simple commands, such as “sit” or “stay.” Rewarding your dog when it follows a command will help it recognize that if it does as you say, it will reap the rewards. It is important to practice with your dog on a daily basis in order to develop its skills and ingrain them into your dog’s behavior patterns.

Once your dog has mastered the basics, you can move on to teaching your dog self-control. This will help with a dog’s ability to walk on a leash as well as equip your dog with the skills to inform you when it needs to go out and develop a healthy routine of eating and play habits. Self-control training will also help with any behavioral problems your dog may have. Properly training your dog will allow you to create a loving relationship and a lasting bond with your dog.

While a fence is required to allow your dog outside, it doesn’t have to be bulky, unsightly fencing that detracts from your home’s natural beauty. Give your dog the freedom it deserves with the purchase of an electric dog fence. NE residents can purchase top-of-the-line wireless fencing from Dog Guard, a leading brand in the industry.

It has never been easier to provide your dog with an electric dog fence. Nebraska homeowners can work with Dog Guard, a trusted brand with an easy process that allows the homeowner to designate the area that they want to contain their pet in. A comfortable collar emits a signal when your dog approaches the boundary, preventing it from exiting your yard. If your dog continues to make an attempt at escaping, a stronger signal will be sent out to prevent that.

The benefits are endless when you buy an electric fence. NE homeowners won’t have to deal with bulky boxes or exposed cords, which can become a tripping hazard to children, family, and neighbors.
