All training and family support provided is positive, we do not train using corporeal punishment. Dogs, like children, will seek attention either negative or positive. We reward good decisions with positive physical and verbal attention. We discourage undesirable behavior with confident verbal commands, patience and physical assistance (such as backing a dog up who advances during a sit or lay command without release). We believe that your canine companion needs a confidant leader to feel safe and that leads to confidant and desirable behavior. It is our experience that a dogs behavior gives a clear insight in to what they are feeling from the relationship they have with the humans in their life, which may be anxiety, need to protect, fear, uncertainty or lack of confidence. Our goal is to teach you the appropriate communication skills for you to create a healthy relationship for you and your canine family member, as well as helping you to understand their communication style.
