Canine Interaction is an inclusive work and training place for our staff and families. We welcome neurodiversity and will support those that learn in different ways to train their dogs.

Our Philosophy

Force-Free and Positive Reinforcement Training Our philosophy is to do no harm.

There is no need for 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 a front attach harness.

Check out our Links page for more content on Positive Reinforcement training. If you have any questions about force-free positive training please contact us.

Some of you may know, but if you don't, NOMV stands for Not One More Vet. Because we have one of the highest suicide rates of any profession. When you see your friend or social media acquaintance change their profile, it's usually because they have learned of another colleague that succumbed to suicide. Be kind to your veterinary staff. From the front desk staff, technicians, kennel attendants and doctors. We are literally dying trying to help you.”- Dr. Jeanne Thompson ...
