We use science-based, force-free, positive reinforcement based training methods because we want you to enjoy an amazing relationship with your dog based on love and trust. Positive Reinforcement training works by creating, practicing, and reinforcing the behavior we want from our dogs. The more we reinforce behavior, the more likely it is to occur again! We will never use or recommend aversive or “balanced” training methods or tools – anything that uses fear, pain, shock, choking, prongs, intimidation, or physical force is not a healthy or humane way to train. Don’t be fooled by companies who offer you a “quick fix” & a shock collar – aversive methods have long lasting negative effects on your dog, and your relationship, and have been shown to increase fearful, anxious, reactive, and aggressive behavior. Let us show you the best and most effective way to train!
