Dog training has changed quite a bit in the last fifteen years. We have seen a shift to positive reward based training. Reinforcers have been scientifically proven to be effective in changing behavior.
Treats, praise, petting, even a smile are positive reinforcers. A loud noise, a frown, removing attention (ignoring the dog), etc, are negative reinforcers. It is the same in training as in life, a balanced approach gets the best results. Fair, clear, gentle consequences that are unemotional and well timed will ensure that learned behavior is maintained.
We teach you how to use these effectively to mold your dog's behavior and maintain it for a happy, confident and secure canine companion that loves and respects your leadership.
