Training Philosophy:

 
  • Training is about building a loving relationship between humans and dogs.
  • Training should be about encouraging and teaching dogs how to make good choices
  • Training takes into account a dog’s individual wants and needs. They have their own thoughts and feelings, and a trainer should be considerate and conscious of that fact!
