Nice Emcapsulation of Essential Need to Knows

by Pamela Veelle
I thought this was a nice encapsulation for beginning trainers or those researching "how to become a dog trainer". I found each video interesting, and informative. Thanks once again to Ian Dunbar for sharing your years of expertise.

Very clear title for the information!

by Susan Reimers
THE BEST! Since I was in college, working at various veterinary hospitals and clinics, it was the people that I had issues with! At that time in my life, I wasn't as wise about life, people and sick animals as I would have liked to think I was! Now, I believe I have the personality to be a dog trainer, so those last 3 tips will come easily to me! And the first 7 tips made perfect sense to me! Thank you for being so clear, short and precise! I'm thoroughly excited and motivated to learn more of your dog training theories! And, this interview with Kristin Morrison was perfect timing for me...without advertising my dog training abilities yet, I received my first client last week! The dog is a 10 month old German Shorthair pup that is pulling too hard on a leash, so the people parents are unable to handle/walk her. I did an intro "meet/greet" to evaluate the situation before I gave them any advice. Anyway, thanks again for your freebie expertise dog training tips! P.S. I always thought my dad got worn out just as much, if not more, with his mental (career) work compared to my former father-in-law, who worked hard physically! Now, it totally makes sense with dogs, too!
