Training Methods

We are experienced in a number of different training methods, but all of the training tools we’ll be teaching you fall under Positive Reinforcement Training. These tools incorporate food, praise, play, and life rewards to attain training goals. Ultimately, this type of training is about helping your dog learn certain behaviours = good things for them! By rewarding behaviours we like, while ignoring/interrupting/redirecting behaviours that we do not like, the negative behaviours will dissipate & the good behaviours will happen more often.

With Positive Reinforcement training, there’s no need to physically handle a dogs in any particular manner in order to gain respect. Rather, I’ll work with you to develop a strong relationship built on trust, commitment, boundaries and consistency to attain the results you are looking for.

Our job is to isolate unwanted behaviours and teach you how to prevent them from continuing through increased management, new training protocols, and/or simply educating you on changing your own reactions to behaviour concerns.
