Positive & Practical

We believe in the power of learning and positive training. We employ techniques meant to build trust and support your dog’s physical, social and mental health.

We follow the guidelines provided by the International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants and American College of Veterinary Behaviorists (link-1 and link-2) guidelines for engaging with dogs.

The use of Social Cognitive Theory (SCT) requires a strong and positive relationship between human and dog. Any aggressive responses or punishments significantly impede our objectives and mission.
