What is Positive Reinforcement Training?
A basic principle of learning theory is that if a behavior has a positive result, the chances of that behavior being repeated increase. Positive reinforcement dog training works by rewarding proper behavior with what motivates your dog. The key is to find what motivates your dog, treats, toys, verbal praise, your attention or any combination. You will increase the behaviors you want by rewarding them with the things that they want.
Good management prevents your dog from learning and practicing unwanted behaviors.
When your puppy was small, chances are you rewarded him for jumping on you, by petting him and giving him attention. Now that he weighs 80 lbs its not so cute anymore.
Dogs are learning with every interaction with you. We can teach you how to read dog body language to understand normal dog behavior and prevent common but unacceptable behavior issues.
