The Top 10 Talking Points for Trainers


Trainers are thinking of new and enriching ways for people to tire out their dogs mentally on-leash. Canine parkour, K9 nosework, geocaching and other variations on leash walking are often effective alternatives for dogs who overreact to things in their environment.

New discussions arise regularly in the world of dog training, and owners need to be involved in them. The International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants, the Association
of Professional Dog Trainers
 and the Pet Professional Guild all offer free and updated information about trending dog-training news and information on their websites and social media accounts. Bookmark them in your browser and visit often to stay informed.
