Top Trainer Requirements: Top 4 Things We Are Looking For
#1. Quality of Care for Dogs
Dogs are the most important part of the equation when it comes to the sum of a good trainer. We are seeking trainers that treat each dog like one of their own, with kindness and respect. Hunting dogs often go away to training for a month or more, causing quality care to extend beyond handling and training practices. Top-notch training facilities should be comfortable, clean and safe, with plenty of space for dogs to roam, grow and learn.
#2. Results & Accomplishments
Trainers whose dogs excel in bird dog field trials and competitions are highly accomplished, but we understand not everyone is interested in competing. Trainers with the ability to reshape hyper pups into beloved and obedient family dogs who enjoy the occasional weekend hunt are equally valuable and accomplished.
#3. Community Reviews
We don’t just look at the star rating, we read reviews to understand the type of experiences people have with a trainer.
#4. Online Presence
We are looking for trainers that are active in their communities out in the field and online.
