We teach a lifestyle. Consistency is key. we learn your routine and apply training techniques to your already existing routine, so that you don't have to worry about finding the time. Training is always more successful when it's applied to your daily life. If you don't use it, you lose it! It all revolves around communication. We teach your how to read your dog's many signals so that you can identify what causes behaviors and how to respond appropriately.
We do not use fear and domination to force your dog into submission. We teach you how build a relationship with your dog based on respect and proper communication. We guide you through how to positively reinforce the behaviors you want to see and not encourage the ones you do not want to see.
A psychology based method works to achieve all your dog training goals. With more serious issues like aggression and anxiety, a psychology based approach to dog training is required to get to the root cause. When you understand how the dog mind works and what motivates behaviors, you have the power to change them.
Dog Body Language
Dogs are always communicating something! All behavior is communication. Digging holes, chewing things up, escaping form the yard, those are all ways your dog can be communicating with you. In addition to behavioral communication, dogs communicate with over 30 body language signals! They give us to clues to what our dog is thinking or feeling and they are the best tool you have in bite prevention.
Dog's thrive on routine, boundaries, and structure. We teach you how to be the leader your dog needs and respects. We teach you how to communicate effectively and use the daily interactions you have with your dog to make the desired changes in your routine.
