3 WAYS TO WORK WITH CREATURE GOOD DOG TRAINING

"I was at my wit's end with a newly adopted dog. When Ruth sat next to Lucy on the floor & started interacting with her- and I saw Lucy's response - I knew it would be OK. It's obvious Ruth genuinely loves & understands dogs. She is an excellent teacher. I didn't feel at all judged & Ruth gave lots of needed encouragement. She was very responsive to questions. We definitely recommend Ruth!"

What is POSITIVE DOG TRAINING?

Positive dog training (AKA: R+, positive training, fear-free, force-free, rewards-based, clicker training and click & treat), is an umbrella term for a dog training philosophy, methodology, and ethics based on the
science of how dogs learn, think & feel. R+ trainers never use punishment of any kind opting instead to reward - with treats/toys/praise goal behaviors. This is the only truly humane way to train dogs or any other animal species.
