Engagement is at the core of every aspect of training. It is fundamental to developing a working relationship with your dog.
Through Engagement you will be able to develop a dog that actively references you in any context and situation. You will become central to your dog's education and life experiences. The training process will become a joy for both. It is from this foundation that you will be able to develop a deep, dynamic, and successful training and life partnership with your dog.
The best way to train a dog ...
REINFORCE behaviors you like and they will increase
INTERRUPT behaviors you dislike and they will decrease.
TRAIN an alternate response to the behavior you do not like. Example: If you do not like your dog sitting on the couch then train him to lay in his dog bed instead.
I use verbal markers in our training. (reward-based training)
It’s a simple concept from the researcher Ivan Pavlow.
Beside verbal markers for Obedience etc. I use also a clicker for tricks, dog dancing and Freestyle Training.
I train only intimidation free ways.
You and your dog have to get a Team and trust each other.
My sunshine doesn’t come from the Sky.
It comes from the love in my animal's eyes
