What is Positive Reinforcement Training?
It is learning something very pleasant or rewarding will happen immediately after a behavior. Pat Miller writes in her book, “The Power of Positive Reinforcement Training”, “All living things repeat behaviors that are rewarding and avoid behaviors that are not”.
Positive Reinforcement Training works by reinforcing the good behaviors that your dog already knows, like sitting and lying down. By rewarding these behaviors, dogs will want to offer them more. How do you make your dog(s) unwanted behaviors go away? By rewarding behaviors you want and ignoring and/or preventing the ones you don’t. It is that simple. I’ll teach you how to train your dog in a fun, rewarding way, for both of you and your dog. Your dog will love you for it!
