Regarding 7: Glad you brought it up.
I may be odd one out due to location. Probably not something most trainers will ever have to deal with.
Although most would expect clients to manage; However is a minimal containment requirement for clients something we should place in code of conduct?
People have seen me working with mine in the past and asked me to train theirs. I know they don’t all have their dogs in yards from what they have said.
Perhaps at least a fenced yard, kennel, dog run or tie out?
I ask because so many moving from the city to the country where I live let dogs run free. To the extent I have stopped carting past certain distance until i figure something to protect my dogs.
I would necessarily require a common sense standard regarding containment before working with a client otherwise I feel it would be negligent of me, as well as wasting a clients money.
Lax containment regulations and overall decline in respect has led to Free-ranging fad has resultsed in 2 deaths locally in past couple years. Only one close town has a leash law.
Excluding the larger towns what I found so far it is only dogs deemed dangerous which require containment inside a fence thus there are many running semi-feral.
I know for most of us it is simple common respect for neighbors and community…
Just a thoughts running through my head and probably outside scope of code of conduct.
