for dogs over 5 months old
We always introduce new skills using positive reinforcement and marker training. Once introduced, we help you and your dog practice in a variety of ways so that you can generalize the new skill and gain fluency.
Once your dog understands what is expected, and has had a sufficient chance to practice, we will test his reliability with that skill by adding distractions. If he messes up, we will show you how to help him fix it so he can get back to his rewards.
Dogs will always learn and perform best when they feel happy and confident, and this is kept at the forefront of all our training methods.
