Our trainers have been training and providing training and behavior consulting professionally since 1995 and 2002 and offer all levels of training. Communication, leadership and consistency is the key to a well trained and well behaved dog and we teach the owners how to use these effectively with their dogs. We work closely with both the owner and the pet on any issue, no matter how large or small and have experience working with a variety of breeds and behavior issues in addition to utilizing various methods and training aids. You can read about our experience by visiting the About page. Classes are held at the 4H Center in Collegeville, PA, near Skippack.
A constructive environment is also very important and we try to make everyone feel at ease using humor and an easy-going style. Our training techniques utilize verbal cues and body language as a tool between owner and dog including positive reinforcement and the Volhard Motivational Method. We do believe that dogs need to know the rules, boundaries and expectations and we balance reward with emendations/corrections where needed and appropriate. This creates a custom blend of methods where dogs and owners are not limited by one specific approach. The goal is to find the method that works for both dog and owner. In the training world this is called "balanced training."
