What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Always ask your self "how natural is this training method?" The more unnatural tools are used in training (squirt bottles, clickers, shock collars, etc,.) the more difficult it will become to convince your dog that you understand them. Dogs relate what we do to what they would expect another dog to do, so the more we learn to use the principles of canine communication (simple body language, facial expressions and vocal tone), the more they will learn to trust us. Clear communication is vital for permanent results and a strong relationship. Always ask your self "will this training method actually help me develop a stronger relationship with my dog based on love, trust and respect?"
