Dogs taught using rewards-based methods tend to be more optimistic when engaging with the world and willing to try new behaviors. The four pillars of Gigi's Training Promise ™ outline our commitment to positive, fun, and meaningful long-term improvement of your dog's behavior and the human-animal bond.
1. We always use POSITIVE REINFORCEMENT
With positive reinforcement, the focus is on what you want your dog to do, instead of just reacting to what they already did. It's a simple and effective way to quickly teach your dog to offer behaviors you like instead of avoiding behaviors you don't like.
2. We know training works when it's SIMPLE and FUN
There's no need for complicated or stressful equipment and techniques to make training work. Good training is cooperative and can be fun for both you and your dog. It's a simple game: watch for the behavior you like and pay your dog with something they like.
3. We foster GREAT RELATIONSHIPS between you and your dog
Good communication is the basis for strong relationships and training is a great way to build trust between you and your dog! Working with Gigi's Behavior Services can help you learn how to understand your dog's behavior and open the lines of communication with skill and confidence.
4. We provide tools for LASTING RESULTS
Behaviors trained using positive reinforcement are strong and long-lasting because they are fun and feel good to the dog. Using our commitment to positive reinforcement, simple and fun training, and trust, we're going to provide tools to train your dog for life.
