Until the complete offering of Doggie Tech, there were four traditional approaches to dog training: Group obedience, private "bandage", protection and attack training, and show work. Group training is inexpensive, but does not address the problem-solving needs of the family pet. The private "bandage" approach solves one or two issues. Unfortunately, in eight months a new problem inevitably develops for which additional help must be sought.
Doggie Tech combines obedience and problem solving in a lifetime program designed to educate both dog and owner to solve immediate needs and future developments. The title of Certified Canine Behavioral Specialist is an important asset since there is no licensing required for dog trainers in the United States. There is no established standard for pet training in this country.
