As a Certified Professional Dog Trainer-Knowledge Assessed I cannot promise results, and an ethical dog professional would never promise or guarantee results. As a member of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers and Force Free Trainers of Wisconsin I agree with their Code of Ethics. Dogs vary in learning ability. Some dogs learn things with fewer or greater repetitions, while other skills are easier or harder to learn. Therefore, one cannot predict or guarantee performance or results. Training and socialization should be considered an ongoing process throughout the lifetime of the dog. I also offer behavior modification, which is the process of changing a dog's emotional response to stimuli. To do so, I use only standard methods of classical and operant conditioning in an effort to overcome (already) learned behaviors such as fears.
