I strongly believe that puppy and dog training should be fun, reward based training. In my classes you will be taught how to communicate with your dog without the need for shouting.
Training basic commands will be taught as games rather than strict discipline, therefore keeping your puppy interested and tuned in to you. This method gives the best lasting results as your puppy learns to listen to you and wants to please you.
Such training as teaching your puppy manners when letting you go through the door first is done without the need for any command at all, using simple and kind methods, we teach your puppy to ALWAYS allow you through doorways before them without you ever having to ask or tell them, only gentle reminders if needed!
A lot of the time we humans use our voice too much around our dogs, to our dogs this can become almost like a white noise. Using our voice when appropriate, we keep our dogs tuned in to us and listening when asked to. When I train, I like to use voice commands only when needed. Your puppy/dog will learn a lot faster if we let them think and decide for themselves what we are expecting of them, then plenty of praise when they get it right. This leaves lasting results, rather than having to tell our puppys/dogs what to do all of the time.
