Treats or no treats, collars or harnesses, toys or no toys, corrections or no corrections, electronic collars or no way? Truth is, almost every training style, method, and philosophy out there has pros and cons. Our philosophy is simple. It takes a balanced technique to create a balanced dog. As in any relationship, clear communication is essential. We believe your relationship with your dog is hinged on you and your dog’s ability to understand each other. Most trainers concentrate solely on the dog understanding you, but we put just as much value (if not more) on you understanding your dog and their behavior. By establishing an effective two-way line of communication between ourselves and our dogs, we are able to actually have communication back and forth instead of just command after command.
