Motley Dog Training
Better Dog Behavior
Many dog parents are concerned about averse dog training techniques. We begin with learning better communication and understanding of K9 antics. Some dogs, just like people, have learning, emotional and medical concerns that must be our first concern. We believe that if the dog is not learning we have missed something important. This dog training philosophy eliminated the need for corrections, punishments and those expensive training collars.
This position is based on loads of research and not just preferences. Some of us think that if the dog does what we want the training method used “works”. In the majority of cases the dog may do as asked but, remains in a state of fear, anxiety or aggression. Our job is to make your goals easier to achieve by helping dogs with these challenges. Before we chose a dog training method we ask, how does it effect the dog.
We have studied the most common dog training methods such as, clicker training, reward based (R+) dog training, and balanced dog training methods. All of which are based on behaviorism. We have also covered the less common ideas, for example dog relationship training. All current dog training is based on a single theoretical perspective, a singular view of canine behavior, regardless of the title.
Our dog behavior services and dog training are based on many theories and techniques from the world of behavioral sciences. Not just dog training or animal behavior.
We like to call it Cognitive Behavior Dog Training. Catchy yes?
