Does Your Dog Do This?
Dog Trainers are Not Behaviorists and There is No Education Requirement for Dog Trainers
Why you might need a Professional Certified Dog Behaviorist versus a Dog Trainer
Only a handful of “REAL” Certified Dog Behaviorists, Canine Behaviorists, and Dog Psychiatrists exist in the United States. Less than ten specialize in severe behaviors like Dog Aggression, Dogs with Severe Fears, and Phobias. If you are looking to hire a behaviorist, make sure when you are looking that they have a formal college education in behavioral psychology, the biological basis for behavior, and learning theory… You get the idea. A Behaviorist has at least a Master’s Degree in animal behavior or similar. Some are called Animal Behaviorists, Dog Behavior Specialists, Dog Behavioral Therapists, and Dog Psychiatrists. Some look for professionals that specialize such as looking for and doing a google search for a Dog Aggression Behaviorist Near Me. When calling and interviewing behaviorists ALWAYS ask, “Do you have at least a Master’s Degree in animal behavior.” if they say NO, find a real behaviorist. Most are just well-intentioned dog trainers that use the term “dog behaviorist” as a catch-all. Dog Trainers teach dogs obedience commands like “Come”, Sit”, Stay.” A Dog Behaviorist looks at the cause of severe behaviors and puts together an in-depth plan to modify the dog’s behavior. Dog Behaviorists are the professionals that truly specialize in Dog Aggression, Dog Anxiety, Severe Separation Anxiety, and more.
Q: I’m trying to find a Certifed Dog Behaviorist Near Me. How can my dog be helped with online consultations? Don’t you need to see my dog in person and don’t you need to work with the dog and me hands-on? Am I going to be able to learn and understand what I need to do to help my dog with online behavior consulting services?
A: Unless your dog can talk like a human, there is no benefit to in-home services versus online services. I have to get the history and details from you. Online is significantly cheaper which allows me to give you more time and help. In addition, you save money. Behavior modification is taught and coached. Online Behavior Consultations with a Dog Behaviorist is no different from going to see a doctor or a therapist online. Telemedicine has been the current trend since COVID-19. The research and studies show online is just as effective as in person, and in many cases it is superior.
