Dog Training Is Unregulated
There are so many opportunities for people to learn about the principles and standards of dog training based on learning theory, ethology, and other scientific principles. Yet, due to the total lack of regulation in the industry, there are many people who call themselves trainers (or behaviorists) with no education or experience whatsoever. They simply advertise that they offer dog training services. Unsuspecting people hire them, and there is no law or regulation to prohibit anyone from doing this. It’s true that there are many certifications available to people in the field of dog training and canine behavior, but none are required to provide these services.
