A step-by-step path to building best behavior

Reward-Based Training

We know large dogs can be hard to handle, but positive-based training is still suitable. It is all about encouraging the alternative responses we are looking for and rewarding good behaviors.

At every step we will make sure you understand the reasoning behind that specific method, how your dog is interpreting the situation, and the details that help the behaviors stick

That way you can ensure your training is having the most effect. You will discover details like the best moment to reward a behavior or how to move away from treats.

Each lesson builds on the previous material so you never feel lost or overwhelmed with new information. Instead, you can build your relationship with your dog, bonding through the skills you are both learning.
