When you are choosing a dog trainer, experience counts for everything, In the United States there is no central governing body for dog trainers and therefore no quality control, in short anyone can set themselves up as a dog trainer with little knowledge, no experience and a worthless diploma. The opportunities for so called trainers to “milk” your bank account with numerous training sessions are plenty and do you really know who you are letting into your home with you? Read the internet bios, but read beyond “I have always loved dogs” and “Graduate of the John DOA school for dog trainers in upstate Barkaloopy” Schools for dog trainers aren’t regulated either so this is often the blind leading the incompetent.
When it comes to dog training… beware those second rate amateurs giving third rate service “a life- long love of dogs” does not make them dog trainers as much as loving to drive doesn’t qualify you as a mechanic. Would you give your tax returns to an enthusiastic amateur because they “love numbers?” or let someone who has always changed light bulbs rewire your house? Don’t trust the under qualified & inexperienced with your furry family member because the mistakes they make now will be paid for by you for the next 10 years in money, time and emotional heartache.
Call an experienced friendly professional today and enjoy the rest of your dog’s life with you. Now, we’d love you to meet our trainers …
