As a commericial trainer I sometimes come into contact with clients who have never owned a true working dog, so there is a steep learning curve. Often times when training begins both dog and client are at the same level: Green! There is nothing wrong with being inexperienced but the problem comes in when the handler does not put in the effort that it requires to own a working dog. ” With great power comes great responsibilty”. As a handler of a working dog you must be prepared to do what is necessary to have great control over your dog without suppressing his natural drives and his/her personality, this is where a good trainer really earns their money, almost anyone can train dogs but how many can train people?
