No Risk Training Evaluation
This session will introduce you to the concepts of dog training. We will discuss how we can communicate with our dogs, why using a reward based system with boundaries will yield the best results and show you how these principles work for your dog and family. This will also give you an opportunity to ask any questions you may have with regards to your dog and our training techniques before getting started.
