  • Go Dog Go! Dog Training uses only fun, positive training methods and techniques based on Applied Animal Behaviour Science.  Our goal is to get dogs using their best behaviour to communicate with their humans, while we educate humans on how to help their dogs to achieve their utterly amazing potential.  We create joyful obedience and good behaviour. We can help your dog with any behaviour problem, even when all other dog trainers have failed.  

    When your dog does the right behaviour: 

     We reinforce the good behaviour using food, toys, games, and praise.  

     When your dog does the wrong behaviour:

    We don't give the dog the reinforcer he was seeking.  That's it. It's that simple. 

    Then we reassess our training plan, to make sure we are working at a level that is easy for the dog to understand and achieve the training goal.  Any dog will always do the easiest, most reinforcing thing, and will do this in a progressively more exaggerated way.  When we set the dog up to succeed, he will learn fast. 

    As a CCPDT-KA certified member we are bound to using humane training as set out in their guidelines.  We train according to the humane hierarchy and while positive punishment fits within this protocol, we never have to go there. That's the joy of training using positive methods and clear communication.  Learning should be a happy place.


     Your dog can be confident, secure, and eager to please. 

  • What we never use:

    • Pinch collars, or prong collars
    • Electronic collars (shock collars)
    • Harsh dog training methods (collar corrections, poking etc)
    • Dog training techniques designed to scare the dog into compliance
    • Methods designed to assert "Alpha" status (shudder)
    • Dominance

     

  • What we use Instead:

  • We train to foster a trusting relationship where dog and human are a team based on mutual respect and communication. These techniques  don't foster what we want. For more information: Click here
