Ask a trainer, live on Facebook dog training Q&A (free)

I have lived with and loved dogs my whole life and have worked with them for 19 years. I started a pet sitting/dog walkingbusiness in 1997 and have been training since 2005. I live in Oak Park, Michigan with my husband Robert, our pit bull mix Daisy,and our senior cat Posey.

The training relationship should enrich the lives of both dogs and people.

Really Karen.
Your argument is like saying to a Police Officer who has just pulled you over for drink driving and explained the dangers to you ‘Well Officer I have been drink driving for the past 10 years and have yet to have an accident’. Great! But there are thousands of other people every day who aren’t so lucky. How about you find a decent local dog trainer or behavioural consultant and spend a few weeks trailing them to appointments. I personally get phone calls for littermates/young dogs raised together from puppyhood fighting almost once a week, in some cases more often than that and I live in a SMALL town of maybe 15000 people. This is why we recommend against it and do not do it ourselves.
The same goes for dog parks – have seen too many fights, have seen too many clients with dogs suffering long term behavioural damage from issues in dogs parks and know too much about dogs to walk in to one and think it was worth risking my dogs health or safety.

Lastly, my non-profit raises funds to offset the cost of RV Seminar-style training workshops for rescues, shelters and non-profit organizations. In this way, I’m able to help those who would not otherwise be able to afford training but are dedicated to improving the lives of dogs through a balanced training approach. We have also created a wonderful partnership with a colleague in Hawaii, who selects dogs struggling in the shelter environment, fosters, vets and then sends them to our center for basic obedience and off-leash training. These special dogs, who were once on the path to euthanasia and are now thriving, become our Ambassador Dogs. Each Ambassador Dog represents what balanced training and dedication can do for all dogs and what we hope Jeff’s Pack seminars can do for many more dogs around the world.
