Why dog training school are never worth it?
Do you have dogs at home? Thinking whether to enroll them in training schools or not is a big decision, especially to those who have their dogs for the first time.
Sending dogs to a training school is what we used to, but is it really worth it? Here are some things you might want to consider on why training school is not advisable for dog’s training.
- Unusual behavior of dogs when seeing unfamiliar faces
You cannot be sure if your dogs will behave well when seeing some unfamiliar faces. The ability of a dog to stay calm in front of everyone he is not familiar with is rare. If that happens, you can’t expect your dog to do well in their activities and training.
- Easily get distracted or stressed
Your dog might easily get distracted and stressed because training school is one place your dog is unfamiliar about. There are a lot of dangers that can occur and also instances such as the reaction of your dog to all of the sights, smells and the other things around him. Your dog should enjoy every lessons and not to be stressed.
- Limited Hours
Training schools have their schedules you have to follow. Time and date is specific. You need to adjust everything. But, once in a while we have some emergencies and unwanted scenarios and you will not be able to send your dog in his schedule. Missed training sessions due to unwanted scenarios is such a waste of money. Nothing is more comfortable than to have your own time and flexible schedule when training your dog.
- Time and Energy Consuming
Going to a dog’s training school is like sending your sons/daughters to school. You need to prepare and plan everything. There are times you need to commute which can have traffic that can also consume your time.
Training schools also have their fees. In fact, if you want better services you have to pay more. But, what if your dog’s training school does not meet your expectations? Can you still have a refund on your payment?
You will never be sure how your trainers will treat your dogs unless you are there to watch them all the time. Some schools do not let you go over and see your dog while inside the training which you have to be afraid of. Do you want others to handle your dog without knowing if they are really professional? Remember that if you want to send your dogs to training school, you have to choose the right and educated trainers which can be hassle.
To sum up all the things above, considering sending your dogs in training school is a risk. You need to deal with many things like trainers, school, fees and the behavior of your dog. Training a dog can be a challenging and fun experience, too. Some dogs may respond well while some may not. Whatever training, it should always be humane and not abusive.
