Individual Training Options for Your Dog Training Clients By Ben Kersen
We all know there a number of ways to get a dog trained, but less thought about is how to best get the owner trained too! There are a few options to consider when starting an individual training client.
Pros and Cons of Boarding & Training Client’s Dogs By Ben Kersen
In this clip I discuss the advantages and disadvantages of dog boarding and training your client’s dog as opposed to doing individual or group lessons with them. There is definitely some good arguments for both sides. Which do you prefer as a trainer?
When meeting a new client (whether they are interested in our Group Dog Training Classes, Individual Dog Training Lessons or our Professional Dog Trainers program) they come with some common complaints and negative attitudes about their dogs. They are often at their wits end and mentally have their dog partway to the local animal shelter. Most have tried other dog trainers with little to no luck and have pretty much given up all hope of living the life they envisioned when they first brought their furry friend home. Thankfully, for whatever reason, they decided to give their dog one last try and called Ben Kersen and the Wonderdogs for help. And I am always so glad they did as most of the problems I see can not only be resolved but can be resolved very quickly.
Over the next few blogs I will cover some of the most common dog complaints we get from our new customers and outline some steps in dealing with these issues.
Until Next Time,
