What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I still compete and take classes from other trainers and well as attend seminars.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
My first dog that I was solely responsible for was a moose in a china shop. Friendly but all over the place. I found a trainer I liked, took a few trys with different classes in the area, and found the help we needed and had loads of fun in the process. My instructor made learning fun for me and the dog. She taught me most of what I use now.
What types of customers have you worked with?
Basic obedience skills for puppies through adults. Proper manors you should teach your dogs and how dogs play and interact with each other.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
If you do not connect to the trainer find another one. Do not give up on your dog.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
Takes consistent work, weeks or months of homework and practice. No, short cuts. It is very worth it. It is very fun for both you and the dog. Look at is a your game and play time with your dog.
