Improving behavior on both ends of the leash.

We believe the most humane and effective way to train a dog is using positive reinforcement. Positive reinforcement does not mean permissive nor does it  mean giving into all of your dogs desires.
Our goal is to eliminate the use of aversive based techniques used in traditional dog training. Positive reinforcement training is about establishing a relationship with your dog based on trust and respect, not fear and domination. 
We teach owners to observe and reinforce desirable behaviors with attention, treats, praise and play. We want dog owners to understand the importance of allowing their dogs think, learn new things, and to make correct decisions. We teach marker training and often employ the clicker as a way to mark the dog's correct behavior. 
We freely discuss our training philosophy and methods with dog owners and enjoy educating everyone on the merits of positive reinforcement training.
