What Is Our Training Philosophy?

There are a lot of terms that get thrown around these days with regard to dog training philosophy. Unfortunately, these terms tend to confuse the average dog owner more than they clarify the methods and techniques of an individual dog trainer, so I won't use them. What I can tell you is that there is little benefit to any training that doesn't result in a better understanding and communication between dogs and their humans. Effective training needs to take into account the abilities and preferences of the owners. Most importantly, it should create an even stronger bond and result in a mutually  satisfying relationship of trust, respect and affection.

Our guiding principles can be best described by the concept of Cynopraxis in dog training.

"(Cynopraxis) is a Greek term derived from cyno (dog)  and praxis (to do), or "doings with the dog". These "doings" refer to the collective exchanges and transactions between the trainer, dog, and family aimed at promoting interactive harmony, mutual appreciation and improved life experience with the dog. Cynopraxis is a pragmatic process constrained to the complimentary goals of enhancing the human-dog bond while improving the dog's quality of life." ​

~ Steven R. Lindsay , author of the Handbook of Applied Dog Behavior and Training Vol. 1-3

There are a multitude of tools, methods and approaches to draw upon. We think training your dog should be a mutually enjoyable journey that will continue throughout the life of your dog as you learn and uncover the hidden talents of your awesome canine companion. Each dog and family has their own unique set of needs, so our training approach will be calculated  to meet those needs as quickly and as completely as possible, allowing for adjustments as needed, to get the desired results with a  minimum of stress for the dog, the trainer and the family. The one constant is the end result...happier dogs and happier people!
