Credentials of Tenacious Dog Training in Sioux Falls

Did you know dog training is an unregulated service industry? This means anyone regardless of training, can call themselves a dog trainer. This is one of the reasons I have put in the work to be able to offer quality science based training and behavior consulting. I also do continuing education credits each year to stay on top of the latest research and methodologies proven to provide the best outcomes, when applied correctly.
