Selecting a trainer for your dog

Selecting a trainer for your dog

Training your dog is very essential. It is always better if we as the owner of the pet train the dogs but it's not an easy task. Your busy schedule can make it next to impossible to train. So you hire trainers but hiring a trainer is not that easy. Here are some tips which can help you get the best trainer for your pet.

Tip #1: What do you want your dog to learn? You need to ask yourself this question. You need to know if your dog needs rehabilitation training or obedience training.

Tip #2: Philosophy and Ethics: You will need to consider your own ethics and philosophies. If you don't like the use of choke chains, then you should consider hiring a trainer that doesn't use one. Some trainers use the choke chain while training and if you as the person have a bad opinion about it, then your dog won't like it either. So, you need to make sure the trainer supports and agrees with your values. 

Tip #3: Ask for Referrals: There are several trainers out there. You can find a trainer on the phone book. So before you book a trainer, ask him for his previous clients contact so that you can ask how his experience was with the trainer. This can give you an idea of his methods, reliability, willing to follow through and bedside manners. 

Tip #4: Certification: You will need to check out the trainer’s certification. It’s not necessary that the certified trainer is good at what he does. There are several gifted dog trainers who are not certified. Having certification just ensures you that the trainer had to pass some minimum requirements which would mean he would have had to put in some hours with dog and do some studying.

Tip #5: Most importantly, make sure you are included as a part on the training procedures.
