Q: How much time will it take to train my dog?
A: It takes on average about 30 minutes per day. The amount of total time required to train your dog is determined by its age, breed and temperament.
Q: What is the best age to start training my dog?
A: Education begins the moment you bring your puppy home. Whether you’re trying to teach it or not, your puppy is learning all the time. Therefore it is best to start the training early. Basic puppy education can begin as early as 8 weeks of age.

Q: How do I find a qualified trainer?
A: There are many who will call themselves a trainer or behavior consultant. However, there are things you can do to make sure that the person you choose is qualified:
• Ask your veterinarian or other pet professionals for the name of a trainer that they know personally.
• Make sure that your trainer has had at least 5 years of experience with training and canine behavioral consulting.
• Find someone who will take the time to answer your questions before you start any training, so you feel comfortable with the trainer. Compatibility with the trainer is essentiaI to the success of the program.
• Get references from any prospective trainer before starting classes.
• Get recommendations from friends or family who have successfully used the trainer before.
Q: Can anyone legitimately guarantee that their training will work?
A: No! While the promise of a guarantee sounds attractive, it’s not usually worth the paper it’s written on. It is impossible to guarantee human or animal behavior. To promise otherwise ,is simply unethical. P.E.T.S., however, does warranty its training programs.
