Certified Dog Behavior or Cat Behavior Consultant Professional certification is a marker of confidence; specifically, confidence that the work the consultant will do will live up to the standards of the certifying organization. If the public trusts that organization, they will trust the individuals they certify. This transferred credibility means you will be in a better position to effectively communicate the value of your services, and how you differ from the trainers clients may have worked with in big box stores.

At first I told him no, I didn’t do board/training work because at the time I felt owners were not following through, expecting the trainer to have reliably trained their dogs, with no commitment on their part necessary. Given the many options for using equipment, I still prefer using flat buckle collars, martingales, Gentle Leaders (if necessary), Easy Walks, and similar equipment. The problem I have with the arbitrary use of these other tools is most owners don’t have the skill to use them correctly and effectively, and many years ago one of our Doberman puppies, we had sold, hung himself on their chain link fence. However, unskilled handlers, trainers, and owners just as easily can be ineffective using a Gentle Leader, another reason why I believe dog owners need more help than ever.
