Links to Find Positive Trainers & Behavior Consultants

If you need to find a trainer or behavior consultant outside of the southern New Jersey area, you can click on the links below. Do your research! Do not hire the first person you speak to. Ask these professionals what methods of training and behavior modification they use and avoid hiring anyone who uses aversive methods. Aversives would include (1) shock collars, (2) prong collars, (3) severe choke chain corrections, or (4) any harsh punishments.

The links I’m providing for you will take you to sites that are primarily for positive reinforcement professionals in this field. Good luck! (This link is for the International Association of Dog Behavior Consultants) (This link is for the Association of Pet Dog Trainers)
