Training your dog is one of the most crucial things you can do for your animal. Part of "loving" your dog is giving him/her everything he needs ! Meaning just giving affection does not create a happy dog. Dogs need many things:
Boundaries and Limitations
Affection - "at the right times"
Once you give your dogs all these crucial elements, you will create a balanced energy dog - hence a happy dog !
I have been helping many dogs since 2008. I utilize Cesar Milan's techniques and true understanding of dog behavior (different than human behavior), along with Clicker Training.
I believe in positive reinforcement, in order to give dogs something to work for ! I do not believe in punishment. It has negative effects, and actually does not work! Dogs do need to be shown the correct way, so there is a difference in 'correcting' versus punishment. Remember, dogs (unlike most people), live in the moment ! We as humans can certainly learn from this !

Looking forward to helping more doggies !
