At You and Your Dog Training & Services we use evidence based training. We initiate communication with dogs by working with them, not against them, using positive reinforcement. This is done by understanding dog behavior and using the individual dog's natural desires to our training/communication advantage.
Our focus is not so much the dogs but the people who live with them. We help you further understand the dog's behavior and create an environment where it is easier to be proactive, not reactive. We give you the skills to then apply at home with your daily dog communications.
We typically start with food but once a behavior is learned we randomize and utilize life rewards!
Following is a list most commonly used techniques: Marker training, lure/reward, capturing, targeting,shaping, counter-conditioning, and desensitization.
In the end we have clear communication and connection with an animal that both wants and enjoys sharing our world.
