The People End of Dog Training


Colleen Demling, CPDT-KA, CBCC-KA


Have you ever had trouble with the people end of dog training?  Difficult or uncomfortable situations with clients – when you feel that you’re just not getting your message across to the owners?

You’ve got to listen to THE DOG TRAINERS CONNECTION PODCAST interview that we’re posting on Friday, 11/6!

I interviewed Colleen Demling, CPDT-KA, CBCC-KA, Founder and CEO of which has been voted the #1 Dog Training Company in San Diego, CA. Colleen has been training dogs for 15 years and also has a degree in social work. She talked to me about the 3 different learning styles of adults, how to figure out what your clients learning style is right on the spot during your first home visit – and after you do – use that information to get your clients motivated to do the work necessary to help their dog.

Colleen also talked about what you can do when there’s a disagreement between family members on training – giving examples from her own cases. And she shares more crucial information that will help with the people end of dog training, which will help you to be more successful and help your business grow!

DTC You Later!

  1. There is a really good book by Niki Tudge called “People Training Skills for Pet Professionals” that talks about this exact subject, it’s definitely worth a read.
