At Canine Company the method of training used is clicker training. Clicker training is a positive reinforcement based method where we use a clicker to mark behavior that we like. It also tells the animal they have earned a reward for that behavior. For more detailed information on clicker training visit Karen Pryor's site: www.clickertraining.com
Canine Company offers private lessons and group classes. I specialize in private one-on-one lessons and working with fearful, nervous dogs. Private training allows me to customize programs that best suit my canine clients and their owners.
Puppy and tricks classes are limited in size because it allows me to work personally with all my clients to ensure they get the best training possible from an experienced trainer.
Please contact me for more information on any of my training options.
