What is Positive Reinforcement Dog Training?​

This force-free training style focuses on creating a positive and symbiotic bond between people and their pets. It does not use fear or discipline, but rather speaks in  language that all dogs can understand; love and respect.

Positive Reinforcement training is rewards based. Whether your dog's favourite reward is positive attention or a tasty treat, he'll jump through hoops (literally!) to learn new tricks and better behaviours.

All dogs have different needs. We can help your dog get the stimulation and exercise they need in group walks or private walks. Plus, they'll benefit from advanced on leash training, to help them learn to behave better during walks.
