Training Philosophy

Our methods are force free and based on the science of Behavior Modification. It's all about motivation!  What does your dog want and what will they work for?  Training should build your relationship with your dog.

There is a difference.  Good dog training is not about control.  It is about building an eager willing response to your signals through your relationship, communication, and trust.  Your relationship should reflect a cooperative partnership of mutual understanding.

The relationship you build with your dog can be strengthened or weakened by your communication.  How you teach a lesson is as important as the lesson itself.  Communication should be clear and constructive, building on your dog's confidence and ability to succeed in any given circumstance. Communication should not be angry or destructive in nature. This will only serve to break trust and create fear.

Trust is the most important aspect of good dog training.  A dog that trusts you, your communication and your intentions, will eagerly participate with you.  It is our goal to assist you in getting the most out of your relationship with your dog.
