When you decide you want help with your dog’s behaviour, it is important to hire a Fully Accredited Dog Trainer. Whatever organisation you decide to go with, make sure your trainer only uses ethical training methods where no force or punishment will be used to train your dogs. Isabelle is a Full Member of the Institute of Modern Dog Trainers. Here’s a little more information about the IMDT.
“The Institute of Modern Dog Trainers” is one of the UK’s leading bodies and independent Course providers for Dog Trainers and Behaviourists. The IMDT was founded to promote the very best in understanding and training of dogs through quality Trainers and ultimately, owners. The aim of The IMDT is to provide high quality training, education and membership to all Dog Trainers, with an emphasis on proven, ethical and science based teaching methods.
All IMDT Trainers have undergone a rigorous Assessment process to meet the high standards expected of any IMDT member. Dog Owners have long understood the importance of using not only a highly trained and experienced Dog Trainer, but also a Trainer that adheres to a Strict Code of Ethics to ensure both Owner’s and Dog’s training needs and met and exceeded in a positive and effective way.
IMDT Members are Practically Assessed on both their Dog and People training skills. That’s what Owners get from an IMDT Qualified Trainer, peace of mind that the IMDT logo is a kite-mark of quality, knowledge and understanding.
All IMDT Full and Student Members have undergone a rigorous, Practical Assessment process to ensure they can deliver quality in four major areas of dog training:
