Most dog trainers have a strong desire to help dogs learn appropriate behaviors and solve the kinds of problems that most dogs experience or create. It is why trainers get into the business in the first place, and it is what they are trained to do. What is challenging for so many trainers is that their success in working with dogs ultimately depends on the cooperation, understanding, and follow- through of the people who bring dogs to them to be trained. Failure to work with people often leads to failure with the dogs.
In The Human Half of Dog Training, author Risë VanFleet draws upon her years of experience working with people as a child and family psychologist to teach dog trainers how to take a collaborative approach with clients and ensure the best possible outcomes for their dogs.
