Efficient and Effective Training
We use techniques that have been scientifically demonstrated to be efficient, effective, and safe. Our training is proven to be successful with any age, any breed, and any personality.
We follow the principles of Progressive Reinforcement Training: "Progressive Reinforcement Training is not a permissive form of training. It requires providing consequences to all behaviors. The trainer takes on the role of a benevolent leader and guide using these ethical and scientifically based methods."
