It's a Journey, not a destination.
There is no doubt when we invest time and money into dog training we want to see progress. However, the first question any dog owner should be asking when inquiring about dog training for their puppy or dog is not necessarily the "guaranteed results" a trainer can bring, but rather the method in which the results will be achieved.
"My dog does something for me because he wants to, not because he has to."
I want a training session to be productive, engaging, and FUN. I believe training should be force-free using positive and progressive methods rather than reverting to traditional (force-based) training. Training should enjoyable and fulfilling.
