As a dog trainer and behaviour consultant, every 5th client tells me that their dog is 'dominant', to which I have to bite my tongue. I know what they are implying, that in certain situations their dog is a little boisterous, or perhaps over confident, or perhaps has learnt that using brute forge helps him to get what he wants.
As the face of a professional business its important that I keep the head down, focus on what I do, and turn a blind eye to others. All I can do is continue to educate myself, become the very best behaviour consultant I can be, and hope that should dog owners need help then they would choose to knock on my door.
While the majority of my 'study time' is spent researching the latest doggie science, I have put in many hours of 'running a business' study over the years, and continue to attend business operations seminars.
Here's my dilemma. Its business suicide to 'bad mouth' other businesses. Its petty, comes across as spiteful, and is quite unethical.
Lots to share !
