Why Force-Free?

We believe that the relationship between you and your pet should never be compromised in the name of training, that’s why we use only positive rewards and fear-free methods. We don’t believe in prong, pinch, shock or choke collars and never use force or fear to attain results.

Force-Free Learning

All of our training uses positive reinforcement and we'll show you the trick to not only training your dog, but making them want to learn!

What is Force-Free Training?

Force-free goes by several names, such as positive reinforcement. The basic idea is that by rewarding your dog with something enjoyable after they offer a desired behaviour (such as treats or praise), the result will be an increased likelihood that they'll offer that behaviour in the future.

Force-free training is incredibly effective. It builds a strong foundation of trust between you and your dog, doesn't require you to force, hurt, or intimidate your dog, and is the most up to date and science-based training approach.

To show our commitment to setting dogs up for success, we've partnered with the Alberta Force-Free Alliance to help promote the force-free and humane training and handling of dogs.
