At Positive Animal Training Solutions we teach positive reinforcement based training to our clients. Basically this means that any behavior we want to see repeated we reward with positive consequences such as treats, toys, playing, and affection. Any behavior we do not want to see repeated we do not reward. Our training is based on the relationship of trust and respect between pet and owner, not on fear, intimidation, or pain. We give you, your dog’s real trainer, the tools to build this positive relationship, communicate clearly with your dog and understand your dog’s needs.
Whether you know it or not you are training your dog every time you are with him or her. If you aren’t careful you may be training them to do exactly what you don’t want them to be doing…jumping on you, reacting to dogs or people in a negative manner, ignoring you when called, or other annoying behaviors.
Once you clearly understand the principles of learning theory, you can start applying them to many different aspects of your life. Imagine being able to help your child master a challenging skill in school, sports or everyday life. You can even get your husband to willingly offer to wash the dishes, or get an employee to meet deadlines!
Whatever your idea of a well trained dog means to you…a dog that will walk by your side calmly, greet visitors politely, or settle on a mat when asked…we can help you and your dog achieve those goals. Maybe you have a dog that is reacting negatively to other dogs or people, or maybe you have a dog that has pushed you to your breaking point with a different behavioral issue. Don’t give up, we can help.
Training should be rewarding and fun for you and your dog. Let us teach you how to communicate on a new level and create a positive relationship for both of you.
