Do you have a good relationship with your dog? Do you want your dog to listen to you in every situation or else? Understandably, many people do. However wouldn't you prefer your dog to want to engage with you and offer behavior you enjoy because you are fun and he/she trusts you? You see where I am going right? OC Canine Coaching offers training to optimize the relationship with their dogs. This may be in the form of puppy training, basic obedience training, or serious behavior work. While they all require your sincere commitment, nothing is more rewarding to me than the love and respect of a dog.
Since dogs don't speak our language and in fact don't really use a verbal language at all,
our challenge in training is opening the lines of communication. With predictable rules, precise and consistent reinforcement of the behaviors we would prefer and the removal of all reinforcement for the behaviors we might find bothersome this becomes possible.
Whether you're starting out with a new puppy, bringing home a new rescue dog, or are just tired of the same problematic and unwanted behavior, you have found a friend and resource in OC Canine Coaching.
My training is reward based. Food and play are huge motivators. Im fond of clicker/marker training but don't require you use one. I look for the cause of behavior and address that rather than a symptom. You will find my corrections are minimal compared to others and I am very attentive to your dogs stress levels. It is well known that punishment hinders the learning process. In light of this, choke, prong, and e-collars are generally not recommended. You do not need to be dominant or alpha to succeed in training.
