I’ve got a new post over on my Psychology Today blog, Fellow Creatures.

The post looks at the different types of dog training classes and consultations that are available, and how to choose between them.

For example, puppy class is a valuable way to help meet your pup’s needs for socialization. Classes for adult dogs are a great way to continue to work on manners, but a private session is better for behaviour issues.

Many online options are available these days which can be a great choice. And of course, training methods must also be taken into account.
