WHAT IS A CANINE BEHAVIORIST
Canine behavior treatment plans include much more than just basic obedience training. While training might be part of the Canine behaviorist’s treatment plan, it is usually a small part of a larger, more comprehensive plan.
An obedience trainer’s goal is to get a dog to perform certain behavior such as sit or stay, an agility trainer may focus on physical exercise and focus, a K9 trainer may focus on protection training, a Canine Behaviorist’s goal however is to understand why canines behave as they do in order to create a personalized, comprehensive treatment plan that addresses the underlying cause of the behavior problem.
Dog Trainers are not always qualified to make a diagnosis and formulate a comprehensive treatment plan for your wolfdogs behavior problem. A Dog Trainer may need to collaborate with a Canine Behaviorist Like Tony Nila who is uniquely qualified to determine whether your wolfdog(s) may benefit from behavior-modifying medication or if a medical problem may be a contributing factor.
Many non-professionals do not collaborate or seek the guidance of a Canine Behaviorist and claim to be “behavior modification specialist” but level of education, scientific knowledge, experience and training for these individuals can vary greatly. Unfortunately there is no governing body that regulates who may call themselves an “behaviorist” or a “trainer.” While some trainers are experienced and well-educated, there are many others with no formal education and have little understanding of animal behavior. These individuals might use unproven, outdated or even inhumane training techniques to achieve short-term results often at the expense of the animal’s welfare and well-being.
