One of the requirements of a professional dog trainer includes staying up to date on specialized topics and being prepared with relevant information when your clients come to you with seasonal questions. If you live in a hot climate, your target service areas include suburban housing where pools are prevalent, or if you live an area with plentiful lakes, streams, rivers, or creeks, then get ready to answer questions about swimming. Conversely, if you live in cold country, your clients will want to know what outdoor activities they can safely do with their dogs.
Having a number of positive dog training tips ready for a variety of diverse topics will make you a better certified professional trainer, and your clients will be thrilled with your broad knowledge base!
