The K9 MentorSM In Home Dog Training


What is your philosophy?

Our unique, easy method simply takes the 3 ways that dogs communicate with each other and uses those techniques to lovingly and humanely control his behavior. We use NO clickers, NO shock collars, NO squirt bottles and NO treats.  Instead, we focus HEAVILY on a method of praise that he understands and enjoys. Praise is the MOST important part of dog training You have to correct but, by praising, your dog works hard to do the things that make you happy and therefore does less of the things you don't like. We communicate with dogs as if they are dogs - not humans. Dogs are dogs and want to be treated as such - lovingly and humanely.
