Our training philosophy includes positive, reward-based training techniques that are fun for both you and your dog. We always stick to the practice of using the Least Intrusive, Minimally Aversive (LIMA) methods.
You will find as many training styles as you will trainers so before you hire someone to work with you and your dog, please do your research.
See The Association for Pet Dog Trainers for more information on choosing a dog trainer.
