How to select a good educator if you need help

If you cannot seem to find a qualified obedience trainer, please communicate with Multivet, and we will be happy to refer you to someone. The same applies for an ethologist or behaviorist veterinarian. Sometimes, behavior problems behaviorist veterinarian. Sometimes, behavior problems seem blown out of proportion, and it becomes difficult to find the root of these problems. It is in such circumstances that it is so important to find suitable professional help to tackle the problem in the best way possible. It cannot be repeated often enough how important it is to recruit a competent trainer.

A specialist can give you much information on how an ethologist and a behaviorist veterinarian work. A good canine behavior specialist will want to inquire about you, your dog and his history, especially where health and the update on the evolution of the problem are concerned. He will also ask you what you have personally tried to solve the problem. The following questions must be discussed:

  • If the problem continues after the program has been completed, what happens then?
  • What is the most severe physical treatment required in this procedure? (the answer will tell you if the professional’s approach is humane)
  • Will certain education tools be necessary?
  • How many meeting will be required?
  • Which techniques will be used?
  • Are there references available on the professional you are about to work with?
  • If the specialist in question is a behaviorist, does he work closely with a veterinarian?

Be wary if:

  • a guarantee is offered
  • The trainer claims he can educate the dog for you, for any competent trainer will tell you that the education of your dog must be assumed by the people who live with the dog.
  • You are told that the solution will be easy to find, that solving behavior problems is easy. If you need help after having read these pages, your dog has a serious problem.
  • The trainer has always used the same methodology.

We, at Multivet, sincerely hope that using spray commander will make the education of your dog or cat a positive experience.
