How to Become a Professional Dog Trainer Advanced Dog Training

Advanced Professional Dog Training: This section has been created to help both dog training instructors and dog owners that dream to learn how to Become a Professional Dog Trainer. The object of these training exercises is not to teach your dog "Sit" "Stay" "Come" or any other of the basic obedience commands. We are taking it for granted that your dog already has these basics down pat. Instead our intention is to provide instructors and trainers with new and challenging exercises to help keep training fun and motivating for the humans and canines involved in the training programs. We have created these training exercises for individuals as well as groups. These exercises can be used to prepare teams for competitions although they have not been created for that sole purpose nor are theydesigned with all of the specific requirements of any particular competition. More or less all of the exercises found on this site are appropriate for any healthy dog regardless of breed or size.

However it must be noted that you should always consult with your dog's veterinarian before starting it on a rigorous training program. When working with groups of dog/trainer "teams" it is important for the course instructor to keep the group advancing at the same pace. That means if the exercises are too difficult for the group overall the result will be failure and the teams will become discouraged and disinterested. It is therefore important for the instructor to keep all of the activities both "doable" and stimulating. Another important point is that if the dogs being trained do not feel comfortable and relaxed they will not learn. In the same way it is important that the dogs do not feel threatened, in any way, either by strange noises, other dogs or humans. The exercises contained in this site are not being presented in a graded manner. The level of difficulty or the skill of the dog must be taken into account by the reader and the training program devised with this in mind
