Spend Wisely on Your Dog
Cut costs on training your dog without sacrificing effectiveness.
With today’s questionable economy, it’s important to save money wherever possible. Spend your training dollars wisely by following these tips.
- If you need professional help with a behavior problem, call several trainers for pricing. Don’t assume the most experienced, qualified trainer will be the costliest. Often the best trainers view their profession as a labor of love and price their services more reasonably than a newcomer in it for the money.
- For basic obedience, a non-profit, volunteer-based training club frequently offers lower pricing than a professional individual or commercial business, sometimes providing unlimited classes for one yearly fee.
- When at your training lesson, pay attention and follow instructions. Many people needlessly spend extra dollars taking a class again because they didn’t listen or do their homework the first time.
- Make the most of your money. If you run into problems, don’t be too embarrassed to discuss them with your instructor.
