We use positive reinforcement-based dog training methods and the least intrusive methods nurturing the bond with your companion animal. We don't use (Fear)aversive stimulation,positive punishment/negative reinforcement based methods. We find them unethical, inefficient, and ineffective when working with your companion animal. These methods come with behavior risks like fall out, flooding, shutting down, and deteriorate the human animal bond. We strive to help strengthen the bond between the dog and their human by giving you the tools to communicate effectively with your dog.
Four Pillars of positive training per Victoria Stilwell but also something I hold dear to my own teaching methods.
1. The Use of Positive Reinforcement
2. Avoiding the use of intimidation, physical punishment or fear
3. A Comprehensive of the misunderstood concept of Dominance.
4. A Commitment to understanding the canine experience from the dogs point of view.
