Every dog has a different personality and different drives. Training techniques should be adapted to fit the learning needs and drives of each dog. I believe in creating a relationship with them that encourages mutual respect and teamwork. I do this through positive training techniques. I do NOT use choke collars, e-collars, or other tools that assert negative stimulus.
I am always amazed by how much we can learn from dogs. Displaying forgiveness, unconditional love, compassion, and patience can create a happier world. We need look no further than our own canine companions for shining examples. However, just like children, dogs are a product of their parents both birth and adopted. It is up to us to lead and teach them the skills necessary for a healthy, happy life.
