|Chicago and Suburbs|
|Dog training can be subdivided into two very different disciplines: performance, or “obedience” training, and behavioral training, also known as behavioral modification. Dog behavioral training is not just about commanding dogs to “sit” and “stay.”
Performance training pertains to motivating more of the actions the trainer wants from a given dog, specific to a particular task. Whether training for work or play, performance training of any sort is about inspiring dogs to achieve actions when asked or cued. The best methods use positive reinforcement--compelling rewards that inspire dogs to repeat rewarded actions with increasing frequency.
Behavioral training teaches dogs self-control. Behavioral training is about selecting appropriate aspects of behavior to motivate and refine, while modifying, reducing, or entirely extinguishing their undesirable opposites.
I have specialized in both performance and behavioral training for over 30 years. My methods are truly unique and quickly effective without the use of harsh equipment, "shock collars," or cruelty of any kind.
