Our Philosophy

Force-Free and Positive Reinforcement Training

Our philosophy is to do no harm. Force-free training is a way of training that only uses Positive Reinforcement methods. There are no harsh verbal or physical corrections. The dog learns to do what they are asked because it is rewarding and understands what we want.

At Canine Interaction we will show you how to use scientifically proven learning theory methods, how to clearly communicate with your dog and the benefits of doing so. There should be clear rules and guidelines but these can be kept in place calmly and gently.

As part of our training philosophy we do not use choker collars, slip chains, prong collars, or any device that causes pain or stress. If you have a very strong dog we may recommend humane equipment like head collars and harnesses but find that most dogs learn best on a normal collar, when taught with patience.
