About Our Approach

At Positive Pets Dog Training, our approach to dog training is far from ordinary. We believe in a set of 29 fundamental principles that guide our daily practices, setting us apart as a unique and effective training resource for both dogs and their owners.

What Sets Us Apart

What Sets Us Apart

What truly distinguishes us is our commitment to teaching the timeless principles of dog training, as opposed to prescribing a one-size-fits-all method. Principles, in our context, are conceptual understandings that transcend the boundaries of various training techniques and methodologies. They are the guiding truths that drive the success of our approach.

Principles Defined

Principles, as we see them, are the fundamental guidelines that underpin the art of dog training. They are not specific methods or techniques; rather, they are the universal truths that apply to every interaction with our canine companions.

Our Training Style

Our Training Style

We’re proud to offer a training style that is firmly rooted in relationships, principles, and results. Our goal is not to impose a single, rigid methodology on every dog and owner, but to recognize the unique needs of each individual and tailor our approach accordingly.

Variety of Methods

Variety of Methods

We understand that every dog is as unique as its owner. That’s why we employ a diverse range of training methods to address a wide spectrum of challenges and goals. Our approach is not “one size fits most” but rather “multiple methods for multiple unique problems.”

Empowering Dog Owners

In our lessons, we take a coaching approach. We empower dog owners to understand what to do when we’re not by their side. Our aim is to equip you with the knowledge and skills necessary for independent problem-solving.

Key Knowledge Areas

To achieve success in dog training, we focus on two crucial aspects:

“What” the Dog Is: Understanding the dog’s hardwired DNA, breed characteristics, and their intended purpose, such as distinguishing between show line and working line dogs.
“Who” the Dog Is: Recognizing the individual traits and motivations of the dog, including preferences, quirks, and behavioral triggers.

Principle-Based Training

Principle-Based Training

Here are some examples of the principles we uphold:

a) The 2 Question Principle: To address behavioral issues, we ask two key questions: What does the dog want or hope to gain from this behavior, and what do we want the dog to do instead?
b) The Green Light Principle: When teaching complex progressions, like a trained retrieve, we look for “green lights” to determine when it’s time to move on to the next step.
c) The Don’t Go to Bed Angry Principle: Simply put, we avoid ending training sessions on a negative note.
d) The When > Then Principle: We teach that specific actions lead to predictable outcomes.
e) The Do Less First Principle: Our approach starts with simplicity and adds complexity gradually.
f) Connection Before Concepts: In cases where dogs are stressed or unresponsive, we prioritize building a connection before diving into advanced training concepts.
g) Making it Easy for the Dog: Our clients learn to set conditions that make it easy for the dog to choose the right behavior and difficult to engage in undesirable actions.

We believe in these principles as the foundation of successful and harmonious relationships between dogs and their owners. Our goal is not just to train dogs but to empower you with the knowledge and understanding to build a strong, lasting bond with your furry family member.
