A canine hunting companion that is well trained is a joy, so finding a reputable trainer of gun dogs is important. If you hire professional trainers, you need to be able to spot good ones so that your dog has the best chance of being an asset in the field rather than a detriment.

Here are 12 ways you might be able to find reputable dog trainers:

1. Make sure your prospective trainer has a track record of working with your particular dog’s breed.

2. Training techniques evolve over time. Look for trainers who keep current with new techniques through ongoing education classes or clinics.

3. Meet your prospective trainer in person, and bring your dog. What are your impressions? How does your dog react to them? Look for trainers your dog responds positively to.

4. Ask how the trainer uses discipline. Positive reinforcement methods produce a better hunting companion.

5. Ask for references. A reputable trainer will have them at his fingertips.

6. Ask for credentials. Any trainer worth their salt will have memberships to several professional associations.

7. Ask if you are allowed to attend training sessions. A trainer that involves you in the process knows you need to learn alongside your dog, otherwise, the dog may be unresponsive to you.

8. Contact the trainer’s references and look for online forums where you can poll people who may know that trainer.

9. Look for a trainer that knows the difference between empowering the dog vs. overpowering the dog.

10. Look for well-educated trainers. How can you tell? Military dog trainer Bob Bailey told Dog Star Daily if the trainer you are interviewing uses one-word or “catch phrases to explain methodology they are being evasive and illustrating their ignorance.”
