We don’t go after obedience directly, we believe that a better path to obedience is through Canine Interaction. We can help you and your dog become a team. Canine Interaction training uses reward and repitition to create default behaviors.
For bad behavior we ignore, re-direct, or remove the reward from the behavior. A behavior that is rewarded gets stronger, and a behavior that is never rewarded goes extinct. All rewards flow through the handler.
With these few simple concepts in mind, we create situations to help our dogs make good decisions.
We believe that helping our dogs make good decisions provides a better education than making their decisions for them.
Our classes take place in the real world: in the park, on streets of Midtown, Uptown and down on the Rondout. You will learn how to handle your dogs in real world situations.
If you want to have a fun and rewarding relationship with your dog and the proven skills to teach dogs to do just about anything you can imagine, you’re in the right place.
