Make sure that you are comfortable and have a level of trust in the individual that is assisting you in training your dog. Have them meet your dog and see their interaction with your dog. Have them demonstrate what they can do with your dog. Many times, just a few minutes of watching a trainer work your dog will show you the results that the trainer will be able to help you achieve with your dog. Watch them work their own dog. Seeing the relationship that they have with their own dogs will also give you good information to assist you in choosing a trainer.

A good trainer should combine a variety of methods and be sensitive to the individual needs of the owner and the dog. While convenience, cost and scheduling are considerations, finding a class, having in‐home consultation or placing your dog into a Board and Train facility where you feel comfortable and successful should be your primary concern.
