Truly Dog-Friendly Trainers

The following trainers have told us that they are committed to dog-friendly methods. We define dog-friendly methods as reward-based rather than force-based. This style of training is effective because dogs learn to choose the behaviors that humans desire. Dog-friendly trainers do not use shock collars (e-collars), nor do they use coercion, intimidation, or pain. Instead, they teach with a gentle, fair approach so that dogs truly will enjoy learning and form a trusting bond with their owners.

All additions are subject to approval. We at TrulyDogFriendly make every effort to screen trainers for this list, but we cannot make any guarantee. If you feel that any of these trainers has misrepresented him- or herself as dog-friendly, please let us know.

[…] There are common-sense guidelines to help you choose a dog-friendly trainer, determine what training tools are necessary and what aren’t, and on the Truly Dog Friendly website are a list of trainers in both the Orlando area and all over the world who have been screened to assure the use of only humane and scientifically-based techniques.  (Note:  Even though the Association of Pet Dog Trainers mentioned above was created specifically to educate the training community about humane, scientifically-based, dog-friendly training methods, the website’s list of members includes those trainers who use electrical shock collars, spiked prong collars, and other force-based tools and methodologies.  Using that listing to choose a trainer is not a guarantee that your dog won’t be subjected to unnecessary intimidation at the very least.) […]

[…] We dog lovers in northern Virginia are so fortunate. Not only do we have a wealth of dog trainers who are committed to using truly scientific methods in training; a lot of those experts are knowledgeable in other areas, too. […]

[…] […]

[…] BarkBusters is a franchised operation - the people who buy into the franchise may or may not have ANY previous training experience - the franchise package includes training the new business owner/s in the BarkBusters training philosophy and techniques, which from what I’ve observed, relies almost exclusively on the use of aversives to suppress misbehaviour. The "guarantee" is not worth the paper it’s printed on, either - if you don’t follow their instructions to the letter, the warranty is immediately voided. (My sister in law hired them - she’s in Alberta but I’m assuming the contracts are the same, franchise wide) Here are some New York trainers, from Truly Dog Friendly: Alison Waszmer, CTC Renowned Hound, LLC Westchester, Putnam, Rockland Counties and Southeast CT Email: Alison@renownedhound.com Lisa J.
