There is no knowing too much

The science is clear

Outdated methods and harsh training equipment are not necessary to improve behaviour issues and achieve your training goals.

In our training we do not utilize prong, choke or remote training collars. Instead, our training approach is based on trust and understanding your dog's needs. As a Certified Dog Trainer Sarah has the skills and expertise to guide your dog into making appropriate choices without compromising your dog’s welfare.

Learn why humane dog training is the way to go

Both the American Veterinary Society of Animal Behavior (AVSAB) and the Canadian Veterinary Medical Association (CVMA) recommend using only reward-based methods for all dog training. Aversive training methods are strongly discouraged.
