We Know: All About Dog Training Courses

What's the purpose of a dog training course?

Animal owners enroll their pet in dog training courses for several reasons. The animal and owner may be having trouble communicating even with simple commands, or the owner wants the dog to learn specialized training such as search and rescue. For animals that compete in dog shows, some dog training courses will help them to compete better. Others may enroll their pet in dog training courses to learn the tasks involved with hunting retrieval.

Where to Find a Dog Training Course

Dog training courses are given by many pet store chains, private consultants, and companies that specialize in dog training. Most of these companies and individuals advertise on the Internet. In addition, your veterinarian may be able to recommend a dog training course in your area. Some trainers are willing to travel to your location for one-on-one training, but they charge a lot of money for this.

What to Look for in a Dog Training Course

When deciding on a dog training course for your animal, consider asking the following questions:

  • Are shock collars used in the training?
  • Does the course come with a written, money-back guarantee?
  • What are the credentials or training experience of the instructor?
  • How long does the course last? Is it continuous, and if so, is there a limit to the number of sessions that your animal can attend?
  • On what days and times is the course scheduled? What happens if you miss a class?
  • What's the time duration of each class?
  • Does the course take place on their premises, or is it one on one in your home?
  • What's the ratio of trainers to dogs in the course?
  • What tasks or training are covered during the course?
  • What tasks or training are NOT covered during the course?
  • Does the training school offer more than one type of dog training course?
  • What skill levels do they offer? Does your dog have to have prior training, be of a certain age, or be completely untrained?
