Five reasons to train your dog
At Companion Animal Wellness LLC we use science based training, redirection, positive reinforcement and reward-based methods whereby the dog is set up to succeed and then rewarded for performing the good behavior (positive reinforcement).
Reward-based training is enjoyable for the dog and positively enhances the relationship between the dog and the owner. This approach revolves around positive reinforcement, where we reward the behavior that we want from the animal. Rewards may be in the form of a tasty food treat, a favorite toy, physical attention or verbal praise such as “good dog!” in a pleasant tone of voice, given when the dog performs the good behavior.
Aversion training or physical punishment should not be used in training programs. Punishing a dog for unwanted behavior may in return exacerbate the problem.
The behaviors we perceive as unwanted are actually instinctual (natural) to our dogs, barking, digging, jumping, chewing, etc.... We just have to teach them what, and when it's appropriate. We, at Companion Animal Wellness LLC can determine if these behaviors are becoming excessive due to stress, fear and anxiety, which will require behavior modification not just basic training.
