Positive Dog Behavior Training

Positive dog behavior training and behavior modification creates the best approach to solving difficult behavior problems in dogs.  Motivation training involves finding out what will motivate your dog – it can be affection, praise, toys, games, and treats.  Finding the right motivator is the key to unlock your dog’s behavior change.  Using redirection, positive training and proven behavior modification techniques, your dog will learn new behavior patterns in a lasting way.

We encourage you to avoid dog trainers who use force or fear methods.  These are sometimes disguised with terms that mislead.  We do not use harsh, punitive methods that can scare your dog and increase anxiety and aggression.  Say no to e-collars, remote shock collars, prong or choke collars. There is a better way.  Throwing things toward your dog, yelling at your dog, jerking your dog’s neck, and using harsh collars are not necessary and are often harmful to your pet.  These unnecessary but very common techniques can make problem behaviors worse, especially if your dog suffers from anxiety, fear, or aggression, and can damage the relationship between you and your dog,

Pamela was recommended to us for dealing with our dog’s agressive gaurding tendency. The minute she walked in the door our dog was in love and we were at ease. She helped us understand our dog’s body language and suggested helpful commands to redirect the agression/anxiety. She was consistently available and prompt with follow up questions. Additionally, Pamela continues to remind us that we will always learn from Ro and she from us.
