Combination training that accounts for variables in personality and environment is the best method to use in training dogs. It is not the least expensive method in the initial investment, but the results are superior to all other training types.
Dogs are not machines. They cannot be simply surrendered for training and expected to execute behavior reliably and perfectly, without consideration for circumstances and moods. Even dogs that are bred and trained for competition have “off days” and do not reliably execute trained behavior that has been reinforced for hundreds of hours. Training is an investment in a relationship with your dog.
I train dogs because my passion is facilitating a successful relationship between you and your dog. I use a combination strategy that is individualized, reliable, humane, and cost-effective—teaching you the skill sets you need to control your dog in all situations—without compromising his trust and personality and without wasting time and money.
