Deciding on a Trainer

Post by Ben09 » Fri Jan 22, 2010 9:44 am

Sorry to be a torture but i'm wondering what all i should ask a trainer to find out their methods of training. Im meeting a lady next week regarding training and i want to make sure that she only follows positive reward based training and not dominance training.

Best thing to do is ask her, if shes a positive reward based trainer then she will be totally happy with the question - if shes not she will either say so or possibly get a bit shirty with you or tell you that dominance is fine and positive training is all fluffy and doesnt work.

Or watch her teaching a class (not watch her with your own dog though!), and see what she does.
