Huh? Ethics and dog training? What the heck does ethics have to do with dog training, you ask. LOTS! A new book about Ethics for Dog Trainers has just been published. It's a must-read for any dog trainer!
The book delves into the ethics issues that dog trainers face, looks at case studies, and then looks at these specific ethical issues:
- training techniques and equipment
- professionalism and professional boundaries and
- dogs and society
If you're hiring a trainer, this is another area to evaluate when making your decision on one trainer over another.
