Finding a professional dog trainer may take a bit of research, but making the right choice will be worth the time.

Steps to take to find a good trainer:

  • Ask your breeder. Even if your breeder does not live in your area, he may know of friends, fellow club members, etc. who may live near you and who may be able to make a recommendation.
  • Utilize the AKC website to find local Clubs.  There you can find a list of various types of clubs that you can search by state. The first two to look at are the Training and Obedience Clubs. If you cannot find anything near you in either of those categories, then check the Agility, Conformation, Performance and Tracking Clubs. Even if they do not offer any Obedience Classes, they can often refer you to trainers in your area.
  • Ask your or other local Veterinarians. If he does not know of any trainers, he may be able to give you the names of some breeders/dog owners in your area that may.
  • Ask local dog grooming businesses and/or boarding kennels. Ask friends who have dogs.
  • Look in the Yellow Pages.
  • As a last resort, buy some training books and videos; you can also look  on YouTube and other  dog training web sites. It is always best to participate in a training class, especially if you are a first time Rottweiler owner. However, if you’ve done your research and you aren’t able to find a trainer who meets your standards, it is better to train on your own then do no training at all.
