    Important Questions to Ask a Prospective Dog Trainer

    Last updated 1 year ago

    You wouldn’t entrust your child to just anyone, so why would you trust your beloved pet to a stranger? A dog trainer doesn’t need to be licensed in order to open a business, which makes vetting a potential trainer of the utmost importance to your dog’s education and happiness. Here are some questions you should ask a trainer before making a decision:

    What Certifications Do You Have?
    Look for a trainer who is certified by a legitimate organization, such as the CCPDT, Animal Behavior Society, or IAABC. Comparable formal education, certificate programs, and experience are all valid, but an independent assessment of your trainer’s knowledge and skills will make you confident that your pup is being trained by a true professional.

    What Are Your Training Methods?
    Training methods and theories vary widely between dog trainers. Make sure you know beforehand how your dog will be taught. Will your trainer exclusively employ positive reinforcement with your furry friend, or does he or she punish as well? If you want your pet trained in a positive environment, avoid trainers who use choke chains, snap chokes, or pinch collars.

    Can You Provide Me With References?
    A good trainer should be able to produce plenty of positive references. Dog training certifications can tell you that a trainer has passed a test, but testimonials from other clients will show you how the trainer applies that knowledge. Training styles differ, as do people, so two trainers with the same certification will not provide the exact same experience for your dog. References will also give you a good idea as to how training is conducted and the possible results you might see in your pet.

    When choosing a dog trainer, you want the best. Very Important Paws in West Palm Beach can help you with all of your dog training and behavioral challenges. With over 5,000 satisfied customers, you can rest assured that your dog is in good hands. Our training methods are fun and easy to follow, helping you establish a leadership role with your dog.

    Boarding Facilities Offers Convenience to Dog Owners

    Last updated 1 year ago

    If you are leaving town for an extended period of time and don’t know what to do with your dog, a boarding facility, or “doggy hotel,” might just be your best option. Checking your pet into one of these facilities ensures that they’ll be looked after around the clock while you’re out of town. They will enjoy daily exercise and socialization, and when it’s time for bed, they’ll have their very own private hotel room.

    Very Important Paws offers dog boarding in West Palm Beach featuring luxurious amenities and professional care. Our team of trained professionals ensure that your dog is treated like the VIP they are during their stay with us, and are more than willing to accommodate whatever needs your dog may have.  Contact us at (561) 366-9004 or visit our website.
