The Tellington Method will introduce both handler and dog (or horse, or other animal) to relaxation and increasing body awareness by way of gentle, non-habitual touches, strokes and slides. This increased awareness will assist in the building of self-confidence. A self-confident dog (animal) is much better able to think and learn. We also work on foundation training, proper use of positive reinforcement, desensitization and classical counter-conditioning. These methods are introduced and used to recognize and reduce triggers that invoke inappropriate behavior from our companions. Positive reinforcement is taught with Clicker work and appropriately timed praise.
Emphasis is placed on developing the handler’s training skills by way of the best use of positive reinforcement to encourage appropriate actions while eliminating inappropriate behaviors.
