Mainly pet dogs. Sports are a whole different thing. What makes someone qualified to train pet dogs? Do titles matter? Certificates from schools or programs? Number of dogs they own? Experience with dogs? Can someone who has only ever had one dog in their life be qualified to train dogs? Would you want to see their own dog(s) and their behaviour? This is a question I've thought about for a while now but especially recently as my area has a sudden influx of people offering dog training services and my manager at work wanting to bring some of them in to show off their services. This is a city of 80,000 people and I need two hands to count dog trainers which is kind of ridiculous to me lol. Some have certificates from 6 week programs, some just because they've had dogs before and want some extra cash, some are probably legit. So what's your take?
