The hardest part about being a dog trainer

 

Dog trainers have a very special role in our organization. They are the liaisons between the animal and human worlds. Each trainer has a specific reason for choosing a career as a dog trainer, but as you could imagine, they all love working with dogs. Not every moment as a dog trainer is ideal, though. Our trainers shared their thoughts on the hardest parts of being trainers.

 

Jenny:

“Having to give the dogs up at the end of their training. We spend so much time with them – see them from shelter to service. The bond we grow is deep.”

 

Jessica:

“The emotional and physical aspects of training can be draining.”

 

Konner:

“Helping very timid dogs come out of their shells.”

 

Michele:

“Having to split your time between multiple dogs.”

 

April:

“Maintaining patience when the dog is not doing what they know they should.”

 

Lora:

“Not being able to fix every bad habit.”

 

Christel:

“Understanding that dogs and humans speak two difference languages.”
