1) The dog will go 6 to 10 feet away from you and disengage contact,

2) The dog will hold a “Down-Stay” for  an hour, and

3) “Heel” with the nose behind your leg and will even walk 3 to 6 feet back if asked.

Standards for Excellence in Dog TrainingWhat you need to know about standards and acceptable practices by those training dogs professionally.

 1. OBJECTIVE PROOF means having a lot to show that the training actually works.

Being in business, holding weekly classes, writing a book, or even having your own radio show about dogs is different than being able to show people 1000’s of PHOTOS and VIDEOS of 100’s of dogs you trained to prove the dog training actually works.

99% percent of dog training does not work or every trainer would have many photos and videos of trained dogs to show you like I do. Notice how virtually every other dog trainer has nothing even remotely close to what I show you just on this one blog page. 

Everyone has a camera on their cell phone and their is no excuse.  Either someone can show you 100’s of dogs they trained to substantiate their competence, or they cannot.

2. “TRAINED” means the dogs are obedient off-leash with distractions present.

I could never understand why someone would hire a dog trainer that thinks dogs cannot be trained off-leash because “dogs are too unpredictable.”  

To me, If a dog NEEDS to be on a leash means it is not trained.

3. ALL DOG BREEDS CAN BE TRAINED, whether the dog is large or small.

You do not need a German Shepherd. Other breeds can be equally as well-trained and obedient.

No matter what kind of dog you have, never let a dog trainer make excuses about your dog not being able to be trained because of its breed or size.

There is not going to be significant Obedience or behavior problem solving if your dog won’t do three things.

5. Training hyenas in Africa or dolphins at Sea World does not qualify you to train dogs.

I could never figure out why so many dog trainers used to be dolphin trainers.  After finding this photo on the internet, I think I get it now—they switched from dolphins to dogs.

I hate to judge, but some people are freaks and should not be training dogs. This page is about educating you so you do not hire them.

How you can tell if a dog trainer is competent and reliable, or not. HOW TO GET YOUR DOG OFF-LEASH by David Baron Dogs have a Spatial Relationship with others. The first thing you need to understand about this is: 1. The proximity of one dog to another, 2. who is higher or lower, 3. who is in front or in back, often determines who is the more “Dominant” dog.
