The best part about being a Dog Behaviourist!

Thinking of becoming a dog behaviourist?

You might see a bad dog and think, oh, it’s just a bad dog. But if you take the time to dig a little deeper, you’ll find that there are reasons why dogs behave the way they do. In fact, we often say that every dog is just waiting to be understood.

Here are some of the top reasons to become a dog behaviourist – From a dog behaviourist’s perspective!

One of the most important parts of being a dog behaviourist is bringing together people and their dogs.

We love getting to know clients and their pets, learning about each other’s lives and what makes them tick. It’s a special privilege to have the chance to see how our individual stories intersect—and then get to help make those relationships even stronger. We believe that healthy relationships are fundamental to living well, inside or out of a family unit.

These bonds are especially important for individuals who feel isolated from others; when we’re able to connect with someone else on a deep level, it can be transformative for both parties involved. As such, dogs are an ideal candidate for strengthening these interpersonal connections: not only do they provide unconditional love but also offer companionship as well as an outlet for trust-building activities such as playtime!

Being a dog behaviourist means that you get to build amazing relationships with some amazing dogs!

You meet them, and they’re all excited to see you. You can see their personality and how they interact with other dogs and people. Over time, you get to know these dogs inside out and help them grow into themselves as happy, confident animals. It’s fun to watch the transformation happen before your eyes! But the best part is that it’s not just the owner who gets something out of this relationship—it’s also you, because by helping these furry friends, sometimes we end up learning things about ourselves as well!

As a dog behaviourist, you’ll get to meet lots of different people when you’re working with their dogs.

You’ll get to meet all sorts of different people and their dogs, so you can learn how each one works.

You may be working with a family, or someone who is living alone with their dog. Some people are very relaxed and easygoing, while others are more uptight and stressed out about the situation. Having different personalities around you helps you understand how to talk to them about training their dog better for better behaviour in general.

A great part about being a dog behaviourist is that you are your own boss, and can manage your time as you wish.

It’s great to be your own boss. You get to choose your own hours, holidays, and time off. You also get to choose the clients you work with. You can work on a variety of projects, which may include:

  • providing training for new puppies or adult dogs

  • helping owners deal with separation anxiety in their pup

  • teaching dogs how to behave in public environments (e.g., pubs)

Being a dog behaviourist means that your job is constantly evolving and changing, meaning that you’ll never get bored.

When I first started out in this business, I was afraid that it would be boring. After all, how many times can you clean up after the same animal? But there’s always something new to learn about dogs – their behaviour, the way they interact with people and other animals, why they’re barking or tearing apart your sofa cushions… Dogs are such diverse and interesting animals that despite being around them every day, there’s still plenty to discover about how best to help them live happy lives without causing harm to others.

You might not always be able to see it, but every day in this career is rewarding. Take your time and see the progress in each session, on both the dogs and the people you help train.

There’s so much to love about being a dog behaviourist!

As a dog behaviourist, you get to take your time with each case and see the progress that is made. You won’t be rushing or stressed out about making a certain amount of money in a certain amount of time. You’ll also enjoy being able to work at your own pace and schedule, which means you don’t have to worry about anyone else’s expectations or requirements for how long it should take for your clients’ dogs to learn something new.

You’ll never get bored doing this job because there are always new challenges every day! I love seeing how excited people can become once they see their dog learning something new or improving on a certain skill set (like walking off-leash). It’s rewarding when someone has struggled with their dog’s behaviour at home, but then finds success through one training session.

Working as a freelance behaviourist allows me the flexibility I need in my life right now – not only do I work on my own schedule but also travel often for work-related reasons – so being able to work from anywhere means that there’s always somewhere interesting close by!

Conclusion

We hope that, from reading this blog post, you have a better understanding of what it takes to be a dog behaviourist! There are so many great things about this career that it was hard to pick just one. However, helping owners and their dogs is the best part of being in this job.

You will have to put in lots of work and sweat, but there is nothing that compares to seeing an owner’s smile when their dog has overcome their issues or when they finally understand why their dog does what he does.
