I want to take this time to endorse the Pet Professional Guild. They are a fantastic organization that dedicated to educating the public about force-free training. It is a guild without mandatory meetings and for pet owners there is no fee for joining. What they offer are many online classes covering every aspect of dog ownership and training. The online classes are very reasonably priced and are usually 60 – 90 minutes in length. If you sign up for a class and then cannot attend you can download the content at a later time. If you are a professional trainer, groomer, veterinarian, veterinarian assistant, dog walker, breeder, kennel owner or other related position there is a guild fee and additional benefits available. The guild also publishes an e-magazine, Bark, which has other pertinent and up to date information for all dog lovers.
Please, take a moment to visit their website and see what they have to offer. I think you will find it time well spent.
