Our Training Philosophy

Training dogs takes consistency, repetition, time, and patience. Behavior modification takes knowledge, patience, and the ability to communicate with the dog. You need to learn to read their body language because that is how they communicate, not just with us, but with other dogs.

We use only science-based, kind, effective positive reinforcement training methods. That means that we NEVER use any aversive methods such as choke collars, prong collars, e-collars (shock collars) or any other methods that use fear or intimidation methods. That includes any tools or techniques that cause dogs pain or discomfort.

Studies show that the only humane training method is positive reinforcement training. Read the article here

from the American Veterinary Society of Animal Behavior.

We use positive reinforcement to teach dogs how to do what we want them to do. We instruct our clients how to effectively reinforce their dog for the behaviors we want to see and how to cease reward patterns, either environmental or intentional, for undesirable behaviors.

Behavior that is reinforced will occur again and behavior that is not reinforced will decline.

But, you have to show your dog what you want them to do instead of the unwanted behavior in order to change their behavior patterns.
