I am different because I spent 6 years teaching pure positive (positive reinforcement, no force). I got to experience and learn the best positive techniques and still felt I needed to know more to be as helpful as possible. I noticed my clients desiring more reliable obedience and better solutions for fear, aggression, separation anxiety and unruly behavior. After exhausting my search of pure positive techniques and not finding proof these techniques actually work for more advanced issues, I decided to look at balanced training (using positive reinforcement, pressure and corrections) Balanced training is a well rounded approach to dog training. The results were incredible and not nearly as forceful as I previously perceived. I learned what behaviors need corrected and how to make my obedience more reliable. Now there isn’t a dog and owner that I can’t help.
