Almost everybody wants their dog to be train. The common questions are:
How to find a good trainer?
Is my dog trainer is good?
What I can do in training session?
I will try my best to give you all a fair Idea about these questions.
A good trainer will always give you all the answer about dog and dog behavior. He/she will ask you to participate in the training activity. He/she will tell you about your dog temperament and will explain which tool he/she going to use. The tool could be as simple as treat and as complex as prong, harness or muzzle etc. Always remember these tools are very much dog dependent, you can’t give a prong correction to a mild/soft dog. And you can’t give a treat training to dominant dog and challenging dog. Your trainer will always tell you to practice dog command in your day to day life like you command you dog to stay while you are doing some kitchen work or opening a door.Participate in training and be consistant.
So before hiring a trainer a trainer you must ask following things:
His training method
His opinion about your dog
His training schedule
Your participation in training
Level of training
You hire a good teacher for your kid; the same thing is with a dog trainer. It is your responsibility to hire a good trainer. I hope you all have got a basic idea what to expect from a trainer when you hire a trainer. Still I will say if possible train your dog by yourself it fun and good for both you and your dog. You can teach basic commands at home with the help of books and article available on internet. But if you are not able to train your dog there is no harm in hiring a good trainer. Always remember there are only 3 things which are important in dog training:
Have a happy training time
If your trainer is not able to answer “how” and “why” he/she is not worth.
