force free

arrow To be added to this list of Force Free trainers please send to me at probards@ozemail.com.au

The problem is that dog trainers are currently self-regulated (except in a few countries that have developed licensing guidelines). They don't have to prove their knowledge or skills to anyone but themselves so anyone can call themselves a dog trainer.

Dog owners should always look for someone with an actual qualification and specific experience with the problem they need addressing.


Listed below are trainers who use Positive reinforcement. Post code order.
