Same here. I would assume it means they have some sort of certificate that tells the world they are a dog trainer, but no idea of what it is or whether it's worth anything.To me it means they have completed -some type- of certification process, but since none of them really have any governing body overseeing them and verifying their quality it actually means very little.
I would think it's up to you? You have some sort of certification if someone asked to see it, so it's not lying to say you're certified as a mentor trainer.So, if I am a mentor trainer for people who take courses to be certified, can I claim to be certified? I have a certificate from the school indicating that I am a mentor trainer. The students finish their certification by working with me.
Or, are the students I sign off on "certified" while I, myself, am not?
Awwwwwww!! <3This means a lot to me if I was looking for something

Its important to me for a breeder to be active with their dogs and it's not a bad idea for a trainer to also be active with their own dogs as well...
