PPDT specializes in the health of the whole dog, offering positive training, as well as health and wellness consults for pet owners and competitive teams alike.
When you consider working with a dog trainer, it is important to understand the ideas guiding their training methods. How a trainer interacts with dogs, and the tools that they use, will determine the way they will treat and train your dog. These ideas will influence the relationship you will have with your dog throughout their lifetime.
When training we use a clicker or verbal marker to help expedite the learning process between dog and handler. We do not use choke chains or jerk and pull methods. Dogs should respond out of their willingness to please rather than a fear of correction, dogs are anxious to please if they understand what you're asking of them. We are here to help show you how to bridge that communication gap.
Due to our quest for knowledge and the love of dogs, we regularly attend seminars and workshops to further our education, to bring you the best positive training methods available.
Our goal is to teach you why your dog is doing what he is doing and show you how to modify the behavior to get the results that you want. Helping you and your dog build a happy, stress free, life long relationship.
