Finding the Right Instructor for a Dog Obedience Training

Jul 26, 2008
It is but common to see dog owners having problems with their dogs. Most of these dogs have no manners at all and more often than not, dog owners are at a great loss of teaching them the proper manners. That is why dog obedience training is very important to teach dogs how to follow commands or to discipline those with already bad behaviours that exist.

Contrary to popular believe, dog obedience training is not all about making your dogs perform artificial activities. This training instead is all about making them obedient and always ready to follow commands when they are told. A dog obedience training starts with the right clubs or dog training instructors since most dog owners have no background with trainings at all. Experts say dogs often have training problems. There are in fact dogs that do not respond at all to any coaxing or tenderness and there are others that feel really scared the moment they hear a firm tone of voice. Some dogs are dominant that they even require strength of muscle and will to its handlers, and there are those that are very eager to please.

When you scout for the right dog obedience training instructor, it is essential to evaluate first whether your dog is good for a group of class or just a private lesson. It might also help to ask your veterinarian, or your dog's breeder, a staff of an animal shelter, or people from the pet supply store, as far as dog instructor referrals is concerned. Another consideration is to take time and observe at least two or three instructors and carefully evaluate and observe them. After you have chosen a possible candidate, see to it that you talk to the instructor or the club first before finally making a decision.

The next step is to ask some vital information about the instructor. Ask him about his teaching credentials. There are some dog obedience training instructors that are certified by the National Association of Dog Obedience Instructors. There are also members of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers. Others may have attended the National K-9 Dog Training School in Columbus, while some may have attended seminars on dog behaviour and training methods. This does not necessarily mean that they are the best though, but at least, their credentials and trainings can speak for what the instructor is capable of doing.

Once you have already enrolled your dog to a club or to a private dog obedience training instructor, observe your pets for any improvements. But keep in mind that trainings take a lot of time and the normal ten-week course is not an assurance that your dogs are already disciplined and well trained after that period.

Dog obedience training is important to let your dog realize to be good members of your family. For a comprehensive review of the Top 5 Dog Obedience Training Products, visit my website below.
