We use Force-Free Training Methods.

We do not use or suggest the use of choke collars, prong collars, electric shock collars, electric fencing or other tools or methods of force-based training. We believe in the proper use of learning theory and teaching dogs in ways that build skills and confidence, and develop great relationships. It’s fun, fast and efficient – and you know what? It lasts a lifetime!
