You should also know that the field of dog training and
pet behavior consulting are not regulated by any government
entity. Consequently, anyone can use any professional title
they choose (however veterinarians can use the term “behavior
specialist only if they are board certified). We
strongly encourage you to read our article “ Guidelines for Choosing a Dog Trainer or Behavior Consultant” so
you are better prepared to find the most qualified person
to help you.
