My Training Philosophy
All dogs have the capacity to learn given the right set of circumstances. It is important to build trust, create a safe learning environment, and communicate clearly to succeed at changing behavior.
Reward based training encourages dogs to repeat the behaviors asked of them without using force or punishment. You will still be teaching your dog to have good manners and be obedient without running the risk of increasing undesirable behaviors or potentially damaging your relationship.
Each dog is an individual. Not all dogs learn at the same pace nor are they motivated by the same rewards. I am patient and will create a program that is paced appropriately for you and your dog, setting you both up for success.
Why it's great for you
You and your dog will love that I focus on making training easy, effective, and painless. Training should be the highlight of your dog's day, and you should know that it's working.
You get both with One Paw at a Time dog training.
