How not to GET RIPPED OFF dog training
THE CONFIDENCE GAME
SPY THE DOG TRAINER LIE
Someone hiring a home improvement contractor would expect to see a portfolio of photographs, not just take the person’s word for it.
Testimonials and reviews on the internet can be faked, and are typically not reliable and often fake.
But, no one can fake thousands of photos of 100’s and 100’s of other peoples’ dogs they trained.
This page is about how not to get ripped off when hiring a dog trainer or dog behaviorist.
How can you call yourself a professional dog trainer if you can’t demonstrate to the public that you can get dogs to be obedient off-leash?
No one in their right mind would hire a contractor if there was any doubt about whether the person was competent and qualified.
99% of dog trainers do not have photos that demonstrate their competency. This is because 99% of dog trainers are passing off cute pet tricks as Obedience and their training does little, if any good, in real life.
Think about it. How is teaching a dog how to “Sit” going to make it obedient. If your dog is aggressive or defecates in your house, how is sitting relevant, or make any difference whatsoever? It will not.
I am a BEHAVIORAL TRAINER and primarily interested in making dogs cooperative, obedient and good citizens.
What you seen in the photos on our website are TYPICAL RESULTS, 5 dogs on “Stand-Stay,” dogs off-leash at rock concerts, puppies off-leash obedient even with cats, etc.
It’s all about temperament and quality of interactions. All the commands can be taught in an hour or two, but the dog will only do them if it is cooperative and obedient. So, that is what I focus on.
5 Dogs Off-Leash on “Stand-Stay”
We are not talking about anything fancy, just a dog that does a few basic commands really well, listen on or off-leash, and does not cause problems.
