Training Philosophy

OUR TRAINING PHILOSOPHY

It is our philosophy to only use positive, force-free training methods. Being a strong leader for your dog requires consistency, calmness and most importantly, communication. Positive training involves learning to read your dog’s body language so you can listen to the subtle messages he/she is trying to give.  We use clicker training which helps mark a behavior the moment it happens to efficiently and effectively change or create a behavior. The clicker sends a direct message to the dog and helps to communicate in a simple and clear manner.  The sound of the clicker is comforting and calming to the dog’s emotional brain, which is why it is a very useful tool when working with fearful and reactive dogs.

We do NOT use aversive and punishment based methods such as choke, prong or shock collars. These forms of training only make the aggressive or fearful behavior worse. These methods break down the communication and relationship that is possible with our pets. Dogs need to remain “thinking dogs” to learn and gain confidence. When a dog is afraid or annoyed (the result of these painful, inhumane forms of training) he/she cannot learn.
