- Pet Training, Grooming & Boarding
I’m a human who has loved animals for as long as my memory. What I’ve learned is that loving an animal and knowing about them is not the same. I grew up with dogs, cats, horses, reptiles and birds. Looking back on all the animals over the years in my care, I can tell you I have made lots if mistakes, but my mistakes are good news for you so you don’t have to make them; not such good news for my animals, although I promise none were seriously injured during my formative learning!
I continue to grow professionally and personally, so I’ll share few things I’ve learned along the way…
Because someone has credentials, doesn’t mean they like animals. Often times they like bullying animals to make themselves seem powerful.
Because your trainer (friends, neighbors, the guy/gal at the pet store) are knowledgable, they are NOT veterinarians. If your dog is ill, please seek advice from the appropriate experts.
Because your veterinarian (friends, neighbors, the guy/gal at the pet store) are knowledgeable, they are NOT trainers. If your dog has a behavioral issue, please seek advice from the appropriate expert.
Because someone says they’re a “dog trainer”, doesn’t mean they are educated. Today everyone holding the other end of the leash is allowed to call themselves a dog trainer!
