Amazing Proof Positive Dog Training Works
Prong collars? Shock collars? Dominance? Pack leadership? Is that really what it takes to train man’s best friend?

However, countless dog trainers and pet parents can confirm that Positive Reinforcement techniques are mostly more successful. We believe it is more humane to teach your dog any behaviour, trick or command using rewards and consistency. With understanding, compassion and structure, plus lots of patience, you and your dog should be able to learn together and build a long-term bond.
Watch our highlight video from this year’s Canadian Pet Expo. It features our line-up of talented performers that are all trained with positive dog training techniques.
I have actually learned a lot from the trainers I have met about managing dogs and people. I think we all respond better to understanding expectations, and receiving positive encouragement and rewards.
