Bernadette has been using the Positive Reinforcement Method to train dogs for 15 years. The philosophy is simple, dogs learn good behavior by being rewarded for doing well and punishment doesn’t have to come in the form of a harsh reprimand or physical force.
Positive training helps to establish and maintain a connection that increases trust and therefore creates a stronger bond between dog and owner, because if your dog feels good about you, he will be a happier, more confident and better-behaved dog.
Ultimately, positive training results in a dog that follows an owner because it wants to rather than following out of fear. These techniques produce reliable results while strengthening your bond, so training is fun for both you and your dog. Fun techniques make dogs want to learn, producing consistent results!
With that said, it is vitally important for owners to give their dogs the opportunities and the tools they need to live successfully in a human world and that is precisely what Bernadette does.
