I believe training should be enjoyable
for you and your dog. If your dog has fun learning and gets rewarded for it,
they’ll want to do it over and over again. Positive reinforcement training
enriches the relationship between us and our dogs and builds a solid bond of
trust. A dog will choose to be a willing member of the training process when the
teaching is done without force.Training with positive interactions builds the
foundation for a wonderful, lasting relationship with your dog.
