How to Know You Are Training Dogs Correctly

Posted on January 13th, 2012 by FetchMasters in Positive Dog Training

Sure, I can train your dog to do just about anything you want. But the truth is, I mostly train people.

To train people correctly, you have to care … about them, their dogs, their situation, their challenges; you have to want to make a difference and be willing to go the extra mile. If you don’t, you have no right being in a business where the stakes are so high, for both people and their dogs.

I used to say the best part of my job was seeing a family’s joy as their dog bonds with them and becomes an integral, well-adjusted member of the family.

But that is now the second best part of my job.

I have been overwhelmed by the outpouring of condolences, sympathies, prayers, kind words, hugs and encouragements from my clients at the recent news of the tragic passing of my sister. So many of you have reached out to me in heartfelt ways, shared your own stories with me, and comforted me, and I am filled with gratitude.

I now am sure the best part of my job is the relationships I enjoy. And that is how I know I am training dogs correctly.
