What Certified Dog Trainers Do

May 5, 2008
In a dog's life, the owner is probably the center of his world. But if most dog owners have the passion for their pets, not all of them have the time or knowledge to train their pets. So, when dog training before was regarded as just a small time specialist's job, the attitude of the time has changed. Being a certified dog trainer is to be considered to be a good career. Dogs certainly need training. More so than most owners know about it.

Dog trainers are often people who do what they love. They have a passion for pets. What they usually have to teach are the basics of dog and owner bonding and how they are to interact with each other. Dog trainers find it a reward to have an effect, in their job, passing along their experience-tested knowledge to people with the same pet passion as they have.

If you're not in love with the idea of taking care of pets, don't become his trainer. Its first requirement is a love for animals, and since you own a dog, I assume you love your dog. But love is not the only requirement to become your dog's trainer; you also need to have the patience and commitment to train them.

Dogs aren't always cute. You have to clean their poop, too. Most people put off calling up a dog trainer until their dogs become hostile. And when they are called up, the dog's training begins, from the moment the trainer steps inside the home, and throughout the dog's natural life.

To train a dog means you must know how the dog's mind and his body works, and how most effectively to communicate with them. Usually the puppy stage is where owners rack up doggie complaints; it's the time when dogs need the most training, and when dog trainers are most needed. There will be times when trainers hold classes on how to train a puppy. It's not too different from teaching a child in the early years

But sometimes dogs misbehave, and some special course is crafted to train them. Many techniques and various methods are tried. Instructions from the dog trainer are aimed at orienting the owner to train their dog. The usual technique is through positive rewards. Other topics cover safety for both owner and dog. Difficult dogs can be difficult to deal with, and it helps to know the basics of dealing with dogs, especially those with histories of violence. The actual training begins once the course has been designed to train the dog

How a dog behaves is dependent on how the dog trainer handles him. So a responsible owner-trainer will train his pet not to chew on property, inside and outside the home. Destruction to property -- eaten flowers and chewed on furniture -- is a common complaint against dogs. This is their nature. So if they are neglected, they will cease to be nice and will remember only being punished for chewing up things. Dogs have feelings, too. So it's important for us to be careful in dealing with them.
