    my friends grandmother has just hired a "dog trainer"

    the woman has done no dog behaviour courses or anything, she just used to be an RSPCA volunteer, they asked her about their dog who's just had pups and why she is urinating on the floor while the back door is always open, the woman said she has lost some bladder control but it will be ok as soon as the pups go (i dont beleive that)

    the woman charges $20 (pound sign doesnt work) an hour and hasnt made much progress to be honest...

    is she just trying to get money from the woman or what??

    I wouldn't hire a dog trainer that didn't have some qualification or wasn't part of an association for dog trainers etc. Looks like she's trying to get money from the woman.

    The owner of my local pethop has started doing this.

    I wouldnt trust anyone who doesnt have even basic training in animal behaviour.

    Ive lived and worked with dogs for over 15 years, but would never contemplate doing such a thing. I just dont think the avergae dog owner can give such advice. We can give opinions in the training sections, or talkes of what we went through and what we did. But to imply ones a professional, and charge a fee is a whole different ball game.
