The Optimal Training Approach

Effective Dog Behavior Modification through Positive Reinforcement Training

We provide dog owners with the tools to modify unwanted behaviors and encourage desired behaviors through positive reinforcement. By using this approach, you can develop better leadership skills and foster your dog's desire to please you. Our training methods exclude the use of choke chains, pinch collars, and shock collars.

Positive reinforcement training uses a reward (e.g. treats, praise, toys) for desired behaviors. The reward makes your dog more likely to repeat the behavior. 

Positive reinforcement is one of your most powerful tools for changing your dog’s behavior.

Positive reinforcement training does not mean that we condone unwanted behaviors. To stop unwanted behaviors we remove what is reinforcing that behavior, and teach a new, more desirable behavior instead.
