Trust your instincts. If something doesn’t feel right with a trainer, he/she is not the right trainer for you. Don’t let any trainer bully you or your pet.
Your pet is counting on you to make the best decision for him/her in selecting a good, competent trainer.
You would be surprised to know how many trainers are unqualified to train your pet.
We receive calls daily from owners seeking help after their pet has been the victim of improper training. Unfortunately, we see the aftermath of behavioral problems brought about by the harsh treatment their pet has received in the hands of an incompetent trainer.
Don’t let your pet be one of them. Never trust your pet with any trainer that uses harsh or negative methods to train. Trainers that use pinch collars, choke chains, shock collars or other inhumane devises do not have a clear understanding of the importance of positive reinforcement techniques crucial to good training.
Not to mention, these are cruel, archaic, and unnecessary methods that can cause both physical and psychological harm to your pet.
If a trainer tells you that this approach is the only way to train your pet – run away my friend, run away quickly and take your pet with you.
Find a trainer that uses only positive reinforcement techniques in training. Your pet will thank you.
