From what I have found, the best trainers I have met are the ones who never claimed to be trainers. These people may not have a fancy page of credentials, or any at all.....but I garauntee you they have forgotton more about dogs then you or I will ever learn.
SOOOOO true. Great point BD.

True, but with the "trainer" I used as an example I'm talking about his own dogs, not clients. If he can't get his own dogs (multiple dogs, multiple "issues") trained and responding to him, it makes me wonder what he has to offer paying clients.
Ohhh, I thought you were referring to 'his dogs' as in his 'clients'. If he couldn't get a handle on his own dogs that would totally be a huge warning sign for me too. In my opinion your credientials ARE your dogs.
