OUR DOG-TO-HUMAN PHILOSOPHY
At Park Cities Obedience School & Dog Day Care, we do not use food in our dog training and we discourage owners from using food as a bribe to get their dogs to behave.
As is the case with people, dog training is most effective when it is built upon a foundation of mutual love, praise, affection, friendship and respect. Therefore, our dog training methods are gentle with no screaming or intimidation, and NO SHOCK OR ELECTRONIC COLLARS.
We use quiet commands, showing the dog what is expected and then quickly rewarding a correct response. Through repetition and consistency, we help owners to ‘shape’ the dog’s behavior while learning to communicate clealry with their dogs through their voice, eyes and body.
Why don’t we use food? We don’t want a dog to obey because he wants a treat. We want obedience that is based on his overwhelming desire to please you because he loves you.
However, just because we don’t believe in using food for bribes doesn’t mean dog training can’t be fun! Our goal is to produce a dog that looks forward to the training sessions and enjoys the learning process. We use toys and play to make learning fun for the dogs and for you.
In reality, a great dog trainer is someone who teaches owners how to continue the same routines and behaviors at home. After all, you will be the trainer for your dog long after the training sessions are over. Dog obedience training is primarily a matter of developing a relationship of mutual trust between dog and handler. It isn’t important whether the dog trainer can get your dog to stop jumping, sit, stay and come when called, what matters is that the dog responds to you.
To reinforce your special bond with your pet, our dog training techniques emphasize touch for praise and reward. Lots of smiles, hugs, scratches and pats for your dog when he does the right thing. We focus on establishing order and making dogs calm and obedient through mutual respect without force. Through these dog training methods, you get a pleasant family companion who obeys you out of love and respects you as leader of the pack.
If your dog can be pushy, aggressive, dominant, rowdy or hyper, you don’t have a bad dog. Your good dog is just waiting to be given the safe space to shine, and our training methods are ready to help.
