    Here’s my short and sweet (I hope) 11-point FSDT Code of Ethics:

    As a CFDT, I will:

    Accurately describe my professional background and experience.

    Thoroughly analyze the needs and requirements of potential clients, dogs as well as humans.

    Be respectful of my clients and of their privacy.

    Provide a precise and succinct explanation of FSDT.

    Present a well-thought-out problem-solving and training plan, one designed to enrich the human-dog relationship.

    Present a realistic yet flexible estimate of the time neededto implement the plan.

    Meticulously monitor and document progress and provide frequent client-feedback.

    Never skip steps to get quick results that have negative side effects.

    Be crystal-clear about my rates and, if possible, offer lower rates to people in need.

    Strive for collegial relationships with other trainers.
