“When you’re looking for a trainer, here are a few things to consider…look at their video portfolio. It’s important. They should have a lot of videos to look at. Also, check out their Facebook page and start talking to their clients (they should be available for you to talk with) to get an unbiased review of the trainer. Everything should be right upfront and available for you to view and see. That way before you spend a lot of time and money, you get a feel for the trainer. They should be well respected and well connected. Get their background. When they come over, have them bring their dog and see how their dog is trained. Get a free demo…they should be able to get your dog to do something in under 5 minutes.” – Ashely
