Our Training Method:

Positive reinforcement, science based, force-free dog training is about establishing a communication system between the dog and owner. In the past, the foundation of this communication was based on the avoidance of pain – i.e. leash corrections, choke chains, shock collars. etc. The emphasis was on what the dog did wrong. Much has changed in the past thirty years. By using the principles of operant and classical conditioning – psychological principles that underlay the behavior of all sentient being including humans – the focus has shifted to what the dog does right. By rewarding the behavior we like with food, toys, play, affection, exercise and anything else the dog loves, these desirable behaviors increase in frequency. Likewise by ignoring, managing and preventing the behaviors we don’t like, the undesirable behaviors decrease in frequency. Not only is this scientific approach extremely effective, it’s also much more fun for the dog and handler!

We train by the rules: No Pain, No Force, No Fear

 

We are always looking for student/apprentice trainers willing to help with group classes and in home training. This is a great way to earn hours towards future certifications!
