Treating dogs with severe separation anxiety

Personal protection puppy training
About Pet Care FactsWe love dogs and cats and work to create a helpful and useful resource for those who love their pets as much as we do. When you do reach out to the trainer’s past clients, it would be wise to ask them how their expectations measured up against the results. Picking a dog trainer at random could turn into an expensive waste of time, or potentially make your job harder by creating habits in your dog that another, more equipped trainer will have to help your pet un-learn. When you find a training course you are interested in, call ahead to see if you can watch a class. If you plan on hiring an independent pet trainer, go to the local pet shelter and rescue home to ask for referrals. Bear in mind, if and when you do set a meeting with a prospective trainer, remember to go armed with a list of questions for them. However, not every pet owner has the time to train their pet themselves, or help them get to the preferred obedience and skill level. Responsible pet parents should make inquiries to discover who would help them achieve their goals and be the best over-all trainer for their dog. Find out if the trainer was reliable, consistent with his attitude, work ethic, and punctuality, etc.


Personal references, online reviews, and training videos all help people deduce what they are looking for in a pet trainer.
Find out what institutions or centers are nearby, and peruse their website to see what kind of classes, and training courses they offer. Usually trainers looking to expand their business will leave cards and contact information at adoption centers and rescue homes to be available to new pet parents. They might have helpful tips for you or be able to tell you how they were able to acquire such obedience and skill with their pet. While you might really connect with one person’s personality, it does not follow they will be the most effective trainer for your pet. Fortunately, there are trained professionals who enjoy working with even the most recalcitrant and rambunctious dogs to achieve their full potential.
The more information you have ahead of time, the more at ease you will feel about entrusting your pet with the training professional. Read the trainer bios or profiles to get a little background on the members of staff, and find out what education they have and what credentials & certificates they’ve obtained.
Self-marketing is an ever-growing part of developing business for an independent contractor, and some pet trainers record videos of their work with pets.


It is always best to schedule a “trail training” day so that you can watch how the dog interacts with the trainer. When you begin the process of finding the right fit for you and your pet, be careful not to assume that everyone claiming to be a “dog trainer” is as reputable as they seem. Once you are provided a trainer’s details, see if they have a website, videos or content to help you decide if getting in touch with them would be worthwhile. If the dynamics between your dog and the trainer seem solid, and your pup is responsive, focused and eager to work with this person, you’ve just found yourself the right dog trainer! Learn what kinds of questions to ask a potential trainer, and what areas of expertise they might be able to offer you. Some professionals hold classes where they teach you how to work with your pet, and others simply teach the dogs one-on-one to achieve specific goals. Taking an hour to sit in on a class to see how the trainers handle conflict, or unruly behavior, will prove very helpful in the consideration process.
