Frequently Asked Questions

Is this program considered "Purely Positive "?

“Purely Positive” dog training is a training method that focuses solely on positive reinforcement and rewards, without any use of punishment or correction. We prefer to use “Positive Reinforcement,” as we reinforce good behavior with praise, treats, or other positive stimuli. However, unlike “Purely Positive” training, we will address dangerous or bad behavior if necessary. If your dog likes to chase cars on busy streets, we certainly don’t want to ignore that behavior.

What's the difference between Clicker & Marker Training?

Clicker training and marker training are both forms of positive reinforcement training. Still, they differ in the specific type of “marker” used to communicate to the dog that it has performed the desired behavior. A “marker” can be a verbal cue like a “YES!” Clicker training is just what it sounds like: a clicker marks the exact moment a dog performs the desired behavior. The choice between the two often comes down to personal preference and the dog’s specific needs.

Who is this program designed for ?

This program is for any dog owner who is ready to begin their pup’s dog training journey with an early introduction to basic obedience commands. It is also perfect for dog owners who aren’t yet comfortable with e-collar training or other traditional balanced dog training methods.

What rewards are used in positive reinforcement training?

We use different training rewards for different dogs. Treats are the most commonly used reward in positive reinforcement training as they are highly motivating for most pups. But we may also use clickers, toys, verbal praise, playtime, etc.

Is there an age requirement or breed restriction?

Although there is no specific age requirement, if you have a new puppy, you should call us first so we can decide together the best time to get your puppy started.

I think off-leash training for Southwest Florida would be a great asset I see people that do not know how to control their dogs they chirp their dogs when they’re walking and it would be so great to see them be as good as your video when I find my new best friend I would enjoy having the K9 off leash training program for myself thank you

Our 1yr old pitty, Boomer was a sweet dog but jumped and listened if the mood struck him. After two weeks with Christine and her magic pixy dust, Boomer is a new and improved dog. We can’t get over the change. We we hesitant about leaving him with “a stranger” for two weeks but Christine sent pics and/or videos with a message each day. She really put us at ease that our dog was safe, cared for and treated kindly. I cannot emphasize enough how thrilled we are with the results! Thank you Christine for literally changing our household!

Hands down the best decision I’ve ever made. I did the 2 week board & train program. I was a little nervous about being away from my dog for that long but my trainer sent me updates every single day. She kept me up to date on my dog’s progress and even sent pictures and videos. My dog had so much fun! She is now completely off leash and I can take her anywhere and everywhere without her being distracted! It was 100% worth the money.

We are older adults, that decided to get a puppy. We forgot how much energy puppies had. Luna is a terrier beagle mix. Did a lot of leash pulling jumping we decided to take Luna to Christine. Luna did the two week training and came back a total different dog. We are very grateful for all the time Christine put in to Luna I would recommend this company to anyone thanks again.
