As a graduate of the Animal Behavior College I would describe myself as a dog-friendly, reward-based, force-free dog trainer.  The Focused Dog training technique teaches dogs that obedience and other desirable behaviors earn him things he likes. (Treats, toys, petting and praise)  The primary motivation for your dog will be earning a reward as opposed to avoiding punishment. I don't believe you need force or pain to train.  My goal is to teach you to use things your dog likes as a way of rewarding him whenever he does something you like. This will serve to motivate you and your dog, without causing confusion or stress.  It’s a great deal of fun too!  

I'm a member of the Pet Professional Guild. Members, such as myself, agree to a strict code of conduct.  We believe that force-free means:  No shock, No pain, No choke, No fear, No physical force, No physical molding, No compulsion based methods are employed to train or care for a pet.
