Force-free training is the only way to go!

I love to fetch!

All good trainers these days use positive, force-free training methods. There is no excuse for using harsh, forceful methods or devices that hurt, pinch, shock or scare dogs (including shouting!).

We understand, now, how dogs learn – so we have all the information we need to modify unwanted behaviours using sound scientific principles.

I’m a BIG fan of clicker training – the most wonderful way to communicate with and train dogs!
