The PAWSitive Approach to dog training:

Puppy Classes|Longmont Loveland Berthoud COOur approach to dog training respects the intelligence of both you and your dog. Our approach is reward based and force-free, allowing the dog to problem solve, and figure out what to do all by himself! We heavily reward behaviors that we want to see again, and we remove reinforcement for behaviors that we do not want to see again! Our communication with dogs is as clear as it can be through the use of conditioned reinforcers (clickers), which mark the behaviors that we want to reinforce. And we will teach you how controlling the environment can help control/stop unwanted behaviors.

Say goodbye to frustration, anger, and inflicting pain, and say hello to enjoyment, laughter, and understanding. With PAWSitive Approach dog training, you are teaching your dog! Your dog learns, and hence the new behaviors you teach will stay with your dog for his life.

Would you like to bring fun and excitement into training your dogs? Laughter is a common occurrence during our training sessions with dogs, and the dogs burst with excitement when they know a training session is about to happen. Bring laughter and excitement into your training sessions as well; contact us for an appointment today.
