If you prefer someone else to do the training, look into enrolling your dog in group classes which are usually held at nearby parks, pet stores or similar locations and the cost is minimal. Some may want to use a professional dog trainer … especially if cost isn’t a factor and/or the dog’s problems are severe. Before choosing a dog trainer, take the time to do some homework and compile a list of questions to ask when you interview them. This is important because the trainer you select and the training technique he uses with your dog can have a long term effect on your relationship with your dog. So take your time and make sure you pick the right one for you and your dog.
