The Ethical Dog Trainer: A Practical Guide for Canine Professionals
Dog trainers face ethical decisions all the time. Do I keep working with a client when it is obvious that the owner will not keep up the training program I recommend to the detriment of the dog? Should I accept payments from other dog professionals to whom I refer clients? What is the proper way to interact with other dog trainers who use methods I disagree with? Author Jim Barry dives deep into the ethical questions frequently faced by dog trainers and offers up a systematic approach (his SITSTA method) to helping trainers resolve difficult dilemmas.
