Positive reinforcement training involves the use of treats, food, praise, toys or play to reward a desired behavior. It sounds simple, but it takes consistency, time and the correct training techniques to shape the behaviors that you want. You will also want to learn how not to inadvertently reward behaviors that you don't want. Learn how to train by building a bond of friendship and trust between you and your dog. It is a lot of fun! The positive reinforcement trainers that we recommend are Carol Harris with The Educated Pet and Julie Schmitt with Out N' About dog training.
They have a huge following in San Diego and are amazing!!!
