In choosing a dog trainer, many people tend to choose trainers by the training method the trainer does. For behavior issues, I think dog trainers can be the best solution as they have the knowledge and experience already in handling such things. However, it is important that you understand the different training methods used in dog training too. It is essential to educate yourself about dog training because the training doesn’t stop when the dog training session stops. Remember, in owning a dog, the training will be lifelong or for as long as you have the dog.
I believe that each dog’s training is different and should be based on each dog’s needs and phase. Listen to this episode as I discuss about the different dog training methods. I hope this helps you in choosing a dog trainer and in training your dog yourself.
