Dog Trainer in Montreux

Hello everyone,

I'm just wondering if anyone knows of a good dog trainer in Montreux, or around this area and more or less what is the cost. I have a beagle and she is lovely we are training her at the moment, but I would prefer hiring a professional in order tog et results faster, she is 4 months old, and sometimes she spends time alone at home so I want her to be well trained.

Thanks in advance

Re: Dog Trainer In montreux

First, have you completed the mandatory SKN course(s)?

If not, here is the database of accredited SKN trainers, searchable by PLZ:

Of course, the SKN is only a beginning - every owner is urged to continue training after you have the required classes out of the way. Most of the trainers who do the SKN courses also offer a full range of training activities - so the database is also a good resource for other kinds of classes.

Look for someone whose methods and philosophy mesh with yours, and of course, make sure that the trainer uses only positive techniques.


Good luck - this is such a fun and rewarding time!

Just a comment, and please forgive me if I've taken this statement wrong:

A trainer trains you, not the dog. There really aren't quick fixes in dog training - establishing a solid bond, effective motiviation, patience, repetition, proofing skills in varying environments all take time. What a trainer can do is to help you with your techniques, show you how to more effectively work with your dog. Working with a trainer is extremely valuable - I highly recommend doing so - but be careful of setting up unrealistic expectations as to the speed of results. I've always held that training is a life-long process, to be worked at each and every day.

Any way, all the best to you and your puplet.
