Positive, Reward Based Dog Training @ The Behavior Barn!
The Behavior Barn offers dog owners a unique opportunity to develop your dog into a well behaved family companion. Our training method is based on canine learning theory. Canine learning theory is essentially how a dog's brain works in order for them to learn. We use this information to develop an efficient way of communicating with your dog. Our classes and curriculum are based on this theory and, in turn, you get fantastic results!
What is positive, reward based training?Positive dog training methods use positive reinforcement(usually food)to encourage a dog to repeat a desired behavior. With positive reinforcement your dog will be a willing participant and you will see how quickly your dog will change it's behavior for the better. We sincerely believe a well behaved dog starts with a positive bond with its owner. That bond cannot be formed without a clear understanding of how a dog learns and what motivates them to do what you ask. Your dog will learn the necessary behaviors needed to be a well behaved, family companion. You will learn how to "talk to your dog" in a way he will understand.
