Dog Training Miami Beach – Tip of the Day
Hiring a professional dog trainer or behavior specialist requires trust. That is the most important part of any relationship as everything else is built off this attribute. If there is no honesty and trust, there is nothing. That is the most important aspect of any relationship, whether it is professional or personal. If you don’t feel comfortable with your dog trainer, move on and find one you do feel comfortable with.
Choosing a dog trainer is no different than choosing a doctor, psychologist or teacher for you and/or your family. There needs to be a good fit. If the trainer cannot explain and answer to you in a suitable manner, sells you something you don’t need, uses harsh, unnecessary, abusive dog training equipment (choke chains, pronged collars, electric collars, buzz collars, E collars, Tingle collars, stimulation collars, tickle collars or whatever the euphemism is at the moment), fire them and find yourself a competent dog training professional.
Is the trainer well versed and adequate in the science of learning theory and the application of dog training? Are you comfortable with the methods they are telling you to use? Do they use force, bullying or intimidation? Time to find a new dog trainer! Are they unwilling or unable to explain their dog training methods or claim they communicate or whisper to dogs? Do they display their university and continuing education studies prominently on their web site as any educated professional would?
Your dog cannot speak for himself and he has is you. Do not let them down. Your research here will pay off for a lifetime of wonderful relationships; communication and understanding strengthening the bond and love between you.
“Try to remain truthful. The power of truth never declines. Force and violence may be effective in the short term, but in the long run it’s truth that prevails. Being honest and truthful engenders trust and trust leads to friendship and a good reputation. Because we all need friends, honesty and transparency are a basic aspect of human nature.” Dalai Lama
