How To Choose a Dog Trainer
Choosing the right dog trainer for your dog and your family is crucial for establishing good behavior and a fulfilling relationship with your dog for years to come. The dog training industry is unregulated so you have to be careful about who you turn to for training advice. Here are a few qualities you should look for in your future dog trainer:
Do they continuously attend seminars/webinars/continuing education? Just like in any industry, the best professionals keep their skills and knowledge sharp.
Have they received a certification? A certification is a good minimum qualification to look for in your dog trainer. The CCPDT is the only independent certifying organization that tests certificants on methodology, skills, knowledge, and ethics.
Do they encourage you to teach your dog what to do instead of what not to do? Dogs don’t know any better, if they did, they’d behave differently. Often, dogs have never been taught what they should do in the first place so a trainer should work on teaching the dog new foundation behaviors first.
Are they familiar with “Least Intrusive, Minimally Aversive” principles? Do they aim to use the least forceful or punitive methods first and foremost? “Positive reinforcement should be the first line of teaching, training and behavior change program considered, and should be applied consistently. Positive reinforcement is associated with the lowest incidence of aggression, attention-seeking, and avoidance/fear in learners.” (www.IAABC.org)
