Training Equipment Policy

We stronly believe that learning should not hurt. Positive Reinforcement training uses proven scientific based training methods to teach the dog vs punishing the dog for doing something wrong. We train from a place of ‘Yes’ vs ‘No’.

To follow our core belief of fear and pain free training, we do not allow any electronic (shock, beep or vibrate) collars or training devices or choke, prong or pinch collars of any kind to be worn in our building or during private lessonsor other training programs. If you need suggestions for equipment please reach out to us for help! We are here to educate you as well as your dog!

If you come to class with one on, we reserve the right to ask you to leave the building until the device has been fully removed. If you choose not to remove the device, you will not be allowed to continue your training and no refunds will be given.

Here is a great article on the science and theory behind our training methods.
