An Ethical Approach To Dog Training
Ethically, I am not allowed to make guarantees on training results. What clients want me to help change is behavior, and that is one thing that can’t be guaranteed. Animal behavior is never fixed or static. It changes depending on the environment, circumstances. That would be an improbable promise, because even if a behavior is changed, there is no guarantee that it will not come back. We can modify behaviors, but how much depends on the dog, circumstances, and the owners compliance. Behavioral issues such as fear, or aggression, may be modified, to some degrees, but never cured. Because of the inherent change of behaviors due to uncontrollable circumstances there would be no guarantee.
