Fed up with your dog? Feeling Frustrated, worried or at the end of your rope? get complete safety and control over unwanted behaviors. Get your dog to WANT to listen to you and come back when called, behave in public and listen in all situations. I can show you my dogs leave a deer running across a road, or heel with me in the most distracting environments dogs who went from dangerously aggressive to now bomb proof therapy dogs (Loki, Theo, Hoth) We offer solutions for everyone no matter what your situation. If your limited on time or money we can still help so please ask.
You don't NEED to use food in training, i have plenty of training lessons without food, though i am now a KPA-CTP clicker trainer, its not always best for my clients to start out with a clicker or even use one at all if you don't want to. If you do want to, its like using a scalpel rather than a rusty hacksaw, its a very accurate tool to communicate what you want to the dog and stops the human focusing on what the dog DIDNT do, and instead on what they DID right!
I know in society, our work places and education tends to teach us to focus on not failing rather than rewarding superb decisions and great behavior. Funnily, the most successful business and athletic education, or all sorts of walks of life, use positive reinforcement and its no different with dogs. you get a better quality result.
I DO use reward training, that can be exercise, toys, games etc so its not just about food at all, its about motivating your dog to WANT to do the things you need them to do at any time, anywhere, with any distraciton and making it such a strong habit you can add more and more difficult challenges and still get a reliable behavior.
Most importantly its about not letting your dog *fail* learn how to read WHEN your dog will ignore you, i know i can see it coming and so if you give a *command* (they are called cue's by positive trainers because its a suggestion we can bet $100 dollars they will offer for us and if they DONT do it we say hmmm sorry old chap, lets set you up to do that better by working on it again before i ask for that in this situation again)
So while i have different options, im confident can suit even those used to traditional methods, its time to make a stand and END the use of choke chains, prong collars and shock collars, why? because even though i used to train people using those tools, there is nothing now i cant do BETTER by using positive friendly methods.
Better results for the dog, cleaner, behavior more reliable, ending in a finished result that doesnt continue to rely on punishment, most people i see STILL wear those collars even years or months later. if you do use food in training, its their DIET not treats, or the way i do it is, so not extra calories, necessarily, AND it is not continued to be used to get the behavior once its learned. its never BRIBING its about rewarding a great decision of co-operation. you will only know what this feels like when you try it !
Anything worth doing takes time, anything new can feel a bit *weird* to learn, let me help you learn them by allowing me to be your coach, someone who guides you until a new way of dealing with behavior issues or better yet, PREVENTING behavior issues before they happen, becomes a strong habit for you.
i have free videos, i can do free lessons if you dont want to pay for something your not sure will work for you, not sure your going to be able to afford it, you can. whether you put the time in and follow up, thats up to you. but it should only take a FEW MINUTES two or three times a day. Your best friend is worth that small committment in so many hundreds of ways.
I KNOW 100% whatever your issue is i can make it a whole lot better for you, with only positive, friendly techniques for you and your dog with some time and follow up from you.
