What Does Science-Based Dog Training Mean?
The American Veterinary Society of Animal Behavior (AVSAB) is a group of veterinarians and research scientists dedicated to improving the lives of animals and people through an understanding of animal behavior.
Why Force Free?
- Force free dog training is the ONLY form of dog training that is backed by science.
- Stress Free, Fear Free, Force Free
Force free dog training uses positive reinforcement as well as the science backed safe portions of the Operant Conditioning Quadrant in order to teach your dog to be the best version of him/herself.
Force Free dog training strengthens the human-dog bond, leading to better relationships at home between ourselves and our canine companions.
