Dog training in Louisville and the greater area

Please check out the informative videos through out this web site. Decades of experience have taught us, that positive reinforcement is the most powerful tool in dog training. We only use humane methods. If you hire me, I will train your dog with love, like if it is my own.

KY Dog Training Louisville uses gentle and effective, 100% positive reinforcement training and behavior shaping techniques. You will also benefit by teachings based on safe and gentle behavior principles such as classical conditioning, operant conditioning, shaping, Steve's "training without conflict" technique, canine communications, and the mood-shaping aspects of dog training, and don't forget about our special "clicker training" program.

By choosing, one-on-one, private, in-home dog training lessons you can expect to develop the strategies and know how to deal effectively with all aspects of your dog's behavior.

These private dog training lessons that we offer in Louisville and the greater Louisville area will give you the skills to gently reshape your dog’s responses and begin a process of communication with your dog built on the foundation of cooperation and respect based on the behavioral science and patterns.

Before you can choose an actual dog trainer, you must decide what kind of relations you want to establish with your dog: based on force or based on trust? Do you want to use punishment to get your dog to listen to you or would you rather use reinforcement? I believe that every dog owner has an incredible responsibility in determining how their dog will feel and respond to the world. I believe in a process of dog training and interacting with your pet that uplifts the dogs' spirit. In most cases, both techniques could produce the results you want but only one method will feel right in your heart.
