The 10 Most Important Things you Need to Know Before You Choose Your Dog Behavior Training Program

Aug 17, 2007
So you have a dog and you have realised that you need a place to train this dog. Most people just look in their telephone book or some go on the internet to search for dog behavior training programs.

While the telephone book is very handy it is probably quite limited, especially if you live in a small town, and the internet is so vast that it can be overwhelming trying to sort through the endless information to see what is relevant.

Once you start to research this topic you will see that so many companies claim to have the best program. Obviously they think that or they wouldn't be promoting it.

Your job is to look thorugh all these different sites. The secret is to narrow your choices down so you end up with the best program you can find for you and your dog.

The first step is to take a good look at who has written this program.

1. Does this person have any real experience with training dogs? Read through all the information and learn their background.

2. Do they have a proven track record with dog training basics? Check for information on their results and how long they have been training.

3. Do they give easy to follow instructions with real solutions, not just vague comments? They should give specific examples of what you'll get.

4. Do they expect results with methods that are cruelty free and adaptable? You will be able to tell from the tone of their comments as well as what they actually say.

The next step is to see how accessible the program is.

5. Is the program available to you right away? You don't want to wait weeks to receive your information - you need it now!

6. You will also need to know if the program covers all areas of dog training basics such as:
- housebreaking,
- dealing with aggression,
- training with praise,
- jumping problems,
- biting problems,
- chewing problems,
- communication,
- speed of training,
- and using food for training.

The program you use should also address issues around choosing puppies and raising puppies, as well as advice on different kinds of dogs.

Then you need to know if the program you have chosen is guaranteed.

7. Do they offer a 100% moneyback guarantee? If they believe in their product they should definately stand behind it.

Lastly you need to know that the program is successful.

8. Can you ask for references or testimonials from others that has used the program? If they have lots of different testimonials that's a good sign.

9. Are they freely and openly giving you access to these testimonials?

10. Are the testimonial specific and detailed? Read them carefully to see if they sound like the kinds of issues you need to deal with. If the program worked for someone with similar issues to you, then it should work for you.

If you follow these rules you will be able to find the dog behavior training program that suits your lifestyle, your dog, and yourself.
