Benefits of Working With a Professional Trainer

January is National Train Your Dog Month, as designated by the Association of Professional Dog Trainers. Did you know AWS has a professional training program? AWS’ team of certified trainers love helping our community of dogs and dog-loving families! Together they have decades of experience and so much knowledge to share.

Whether your pup is young or old, big or small, new at training or a seasoned student, there are so many benefits of working with a certified professional trainer. If you’ve been trying to train at home and find that your goals and expectations aren’t coming true, consider reaching out for help. There’s nothing quite like working with a professional in the field!

Science Based Techniques:

First, certified dog trainers are always learning and staying up-to-date on recent, scientific studies in their field. As such, they understand the principles of how dogs learn and can utilize methods based on evidence!

Customized Programs:

Every dog has a unique personality and individual needs that a professional trainer has been taught to look for. They can then tailor a personalized training program that will benefit your dog specifically.

Problem Solving Recommendations:

If your at-home training plan and goals aren’t working out, a certified trainer can help you understand why. Then, they steer you in the right direction about what your next steps should be.

Supportive Environment:

Experienced professional trainers are empathetic towards your struggles and goals. They understand that training your dog should be a fun and beneficial experience for both of you. They’re non-judgmental and just here to help!

AWS’ certified professional trainers offer group classes, social hours and one-on-one lessons. Check out the training page to learn more! Contact our Training Team for more information, or enroll your dog in one of our programs. You’ll see how much fun working with a trainer can be!
