While her filming and professional schedule unfortunately prevent her from making private house calls, Victoria has responded to the dog-owning public's ever-growing need for more positive training professionals by creating a global network of hand-picked, world-class positive trainers – Victoria Stilwell Positively Dog Training (VSPDT).
Victoria herself personally oversees the recruitment of the very best positive reinforcement dog trainers in the world to join her VSPDT team and bring the Positively mission of force-free positive training to the entire dog-loving world.
With levels of training experience and dog behavior wisdom similar to Victoria’s, all VSPDT Trainers have worked with Victoria personally and share her passion for positive training as well as her expert ability to achieve unparalleled results without using force or dangerous dominance-based techniques. These hand-selected trainers are available to get you and your dog back on the path towards balance and harmony using the scientifically-based methods Victoria is helping to bring back to the mainstream on It’s Me or the Dog.
VSPDT trainers can be found all around the world, but in response to the need for qualified positive dog training advice from those who may not be located near a VSPDT trainer, Victoria created the VSPDT Phone Consultation program. This unique initiative provides everyone with direct access to a VSPDT trainer via phone or Skype and ensures that even those who live far from the nearest VSPDT can get the information that they and their dog need to live a happy, healthy life together.
VSPDT is not a training school and does not teach people to become dog trainers. The Victoria Stilwell Academy for Dog Training & Behavior, however, provides world-class dog trainer education courses designed to teach people the skills, knowledge and confidence they need to run a successful dog training business.
For those positive trainers already practicing professionally who are interested in joining the VSPDT team, more information about VSPDT can be found at www.vspdt.com.
