How Do You Know If You Have What It Takes To Become A Dog Trainer?
Dog trainers have to be able to train both dogs and people
If you want to become a dog trainer, there is something you need to know…teaching people is also a part of the process. If you are good at teaching people, you could be a great dog trainer! Sometimes when training dogs, the class is more about teaching the handlers how to communicate with their canine companions then it is about actually getting the dog to do what you want.
Communicating proper reinforcement and skill in timing can be a challenging part of the lessons by itself. Having a pet guardian that understands how to positively teach their pet creates a happier, more motivated, social and focused handler. Which in turn allows the dog to learn in a more relaxed and less stressed environment.
This is better for all parties involved! Particularly in rescue, this is what keeps pets in their adopted homes! An adoptive family is more likely to appreciate, embrace and create a loving home for the dog that has been well trained.
This is one reason being a dog trainer is personally rewarding. Dogs are in a forever home!
