San Diego, CA, San Diego(5 Reviews)
We use a method combining 3 elements:
- Positive Reinforcement for alternate Behavior & redirection
- Environmental Management
We don’t use negative reinforcement and don’t follow any of the dominance mythology that exists in the dog training world. Our modern approach is based on scientific research, canine ethology and psychology, and fulfillment of a dogs hierarchy of needs (Abraham Maslow Psychology). Positive reinforcement has been proven to work on every animal with a central nervous system (even goldfish!) Dominance methods may work in the short term but research has shown them to cause more harm than good, and can ultimately make the problems worse because these methods are only designed to treat symptoms. Our modern approach was created to treat the cause of the behavior by first asking, “why”.
Dogs behave the way they do for a reason. They function 100% on 2 things: Instinct & association (conditioning).
This does not mean that every dog out there does not come with it's own unique personality (and that's why we love 'em, right?). However, this does mean that every dog is trainable under the right circumstances and with the right trainer. Some dogs may just take a little longer to train than others.
If we can't help you, We will refer you to someone who can. Behaviors problems are the number one cause of death for domesticated dogs, and that is a tragic case you because there is always another solution. No one deserves to be given up on. Especially the furry ones who come with 4 paws and a tail.

Understanding that the number one reason dogs are euthanized is because of behavior issues and not medical issues is a huge reason why we do what we do. What we do saves lives, every day, and there’s nothing more rewarding than that.

Life is much easier when you become your own boss and control your own money. You make your own schedule, you choose your own clients, and you get the option to relax at the end of the day and take breaks when you need it.
