dog training philosophyOur dog training philosophy isn’t just “ours.” It is shared by thousands of other animal trainers around the globe. This approach to training is based in science and the research performed by well-known scientists such as Pavlov and B.F. Skinner.

This science-based approach, founded in learning theory, is used around the world by skilled, educated, and expert animal trainers including the US Marine to train their submarine detecting dolphins and world renown Zoos to train their animals to voluntarily submit to veterinary exams.

Dog training should provide results without sacrificing your and your dog’s relationship. Positive training can help you reach your goals all the while creating a healthy and happy learning environment for everyone – including the dog.

We get results with the skilled application of positive reinforcement training techniques.


Why “All Positive”?

By “all positive” we mean that we only use the most dog-friendly (and people-friendly) training techniques. Positive reinforcement training is proven to leave longer lasting results and creates more stable dogs. It is the most humane way of training animals.

Training based in punishment and corrections is not recommended by the American Veterinary Society of Animal Behavior, see their position statement here: AVSAB Position Statement

All Positive Dog Training is about being a proactive trainer and leader.

These are 5 things that describe this approach to dog training:

  1. I say “yes” way more often than “no.”
  2. I change the environment to allow the dog to make good choices.
  3. I reward generously for good choices.
  4. I teach the dog that the world is safe, fun, and doesn’t have to be stressful to prevent or eliminate aggression.
  5. I create happy, well-balanced, problem-solving dogs that can make good choices in the modern world.
