Question by Kay08: Has this ever happened to dog trainers? How do you overcome this?
Some how my clientele is thinking I am a free advice behaviorist dog trainer? Where did this come from? I am getting lots of emails with questions with training advice, but they don’t follow through on the sessions. They expect me to come forth with all the techniques via email without the training sessions cost free. It does not work that way. Plus my rates are low for the fact I feel dog training should not be so expensive. I even have my certifications. My services are conveyed on my website. Has this happened to other dog trainers before?

It’s not happened to me, but business sense says you should put a limit on that. Like, they get one question answered free, if they have more, they have to book a session and ask you in person. Put it in writing on your site, so you don’t have to repeat it constantly (or at least not QUITE as much) on every email.
