Owners vs. Trainers: Who Should Train The Dogs?

Course Information:

For many years “Our job is to teach people to train their dogs” has been the mantra of the R+ training community. It sounds so logical. But can we really teach owners to train their dogs and solve behavior problems in a few short sessions? Or does this approach lie at the heart of the many frustrations of our profession—unfinished cases, poor compliance and income, burnout?

These are the questions dogTEC sets out to answer using data from a one-year study of dog trainers who have switched their businesses from coaching (teaching clients to train their own dogs) to day training (training clients’ dogs and then teaching clients how to maintain the progress). Find out what the data reveals about these trainers’ income, satisfaction, client compliance, and case resolution.

We also share best day training practices and advice gathered from the trainers involved in the study.
