Client Pictures from Instagram

The client pictures on this page are from our Instagram Feed. You can see the favorite pictures of our many clients.

Further, it gives them biological fulfillment and makes them happier beings.

About Our Client Pictures

We can debate good dog training all day long but happy client pictures say more than a thousand words. The client pictures give you a chance to see our adorable dogs during training. Further, the video clips show how we use positive and negative reinforcement to shape behaviors. In addition, you can see how we use positive and negative punishment to stop behaviors. All, without creating fear, anxiety, undue stress, or apprehension towards us, as too many unskilled dog trainers claim would happen. Our client pictures show you how we do things and how happy the dogs in training are. Even when they get a penalty here and there. How things are done matters a lot!

Play-Based Training is Science

During the play-based training sessions, we engage the dogs through the six aspects of Play. In short, they are searching, stalking, chasing, fighting, celebrating, and consuming.  This fulfills the dog's genetics and the happy client pictures highlight this well. Every dog prefers some aspects of play over others. During training, we figure out how your dog likes to play best. Also, if he is a competitive or cooperative player. In addition, the client pictures show how engaged dogs become if we know how to play with them best. Having your dog pay attention to you when it matters, comes from having this kind of relationship. This engagement is the foundation of reliable service dogs.

Our client pictures and videos showcase the correct application of actual learning science. In case you are interested, take a look at some of the 100+ peer-reviewed and independently validated studies we provide in this article on our pet dog training website. These form the foundation of over one hundred years of learning science. We hope you enjoy these client pictures. For full training videos please also visit our YouTube Channel.
