The Optimal Training Approach

We train owners to use positive reinforcement with their dogs to modify unwanted behaviors and increase desired behaviors. Using positive reinforcement will increase leadership and your dog's desire to please you. We do not utilize choke chains, pinch collars or shock collars in our training.

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 shaping or 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.
