Bringing Truly Certified
The Dog Training Industry
Since the Canine Industry is not regulated or mandated, there are lots of problems, false marketing, and just blatant lies. Sadly, it’s the pets and pet owners that suffer while others profit from it.
Did you know, anyone can say that they’re a dog trainer and start a website for $8/month, say they’re ‘the number one trainer’, have a cute business name, and some cute pictures of them with a dog?
Owning a dog for 10 years and ‘saying you have 10 years experience’, is like owning a car for 10 years and saying you are certified and can train people to be mechanics and race car drivers. How about having a lot of ‘certified’ emblems on their website that anyone can pay $30 to $80 a year to be a member? Or, saying that they are certified or Government certified-when there is no such classification?! Some dog trainers have never taken any training or stepped foot in a classroom! Where others have taken an online course that’s multiple choice (where you can just Google the answers), and then a person who took the same online course before you in your area, checks your work with a dog, and boom, you’re ‘certified’.
Of course this doesn’t work, and that’s why we see people that have hired a trainer or gone through puppy or obedience classes and they haven’t worked. Even worse, trainers who use prong, shock, or choke collars etc. If you need to physically hurt or scare and intimidate the dog to do something, then you are NOT a trainer.
Think of it this way, dogs have an intelligence of 2-3 year olds… training and parenting are very similar. If you were teaching your 3 year old daughter to clean her room, would you get a device that chokes her to teach her how to clean her room? Of course not! Plus, it’s illegal-but it’s legal to do it to dogs and that’s so wrong! To teach dog owners to do this, and charge them money is even worse!
Now we know about some of the ‘trainers’ out there, and what to look for in a trainer, what about Canine United?
Why use Canine United?
Canine United uses Positive Reinforcement, Classic conditioning, Desensitization, Clicker Training, Shaping, Luring, Extinction, Counter Conditioning etc. These are all programs developed by certified veterinarians with PHD’s in the canine field of study of training, behaviour and psychology.
