Please don't go to Tiktok for dog training advice!
Don’t get me wrong TikTok is great for learning, I use it as many of you know. It is a great educational tool for learning.
What it isn’t, is individual to your situation or your dog, monitored, screened or even transparent.
Just like going to the dentist or the vet, dog training and behaviour modification can be costly. But it is also essential to help you and your dog as individuals from highly trained people who are qualified, insured, vetted and assessed by a regulating organisation voluntarily.
So if funds are tight where can you go?
Do No Harm Dog Training group. How does this work? Join the group like any group, read the rules, agree to the rules and submit your join request. Once you have been approved you can bring your questions to us.
Who do you get to speak to?
Linda Michaels MA best selling author of the Do No Harm Dog Training and Behaviour Handbook who is also the founder of the group.
We have an amazing and highly qualified Admin and Moderator team, who volunteer their time to help people all over the world with their dog training and behaviour questions.
With safe, qualified and knowledgable advice, we can also monitor comments from others and keep this a safe place for you to talk and get the help that you need.
On TikTok you can be talking to anyone. Especially the profiles with no profile picture or videos. Kids use TikTok. It isn’t a safe place, it’s also not safe for your mental health. Trolls thrive in the world of TikTok, escaping community guideline violations, they are protected by anonymity and they come in droves.
Make sure you know who you’re talking to. Many professionals on TikTok have link trees which signpost you to their websites etc. Link trees also cost money so you know how important transparency is to these professionals who use them.
