I have a Deep love and Compassion for animals, especially dogs. Having grown up with dogs my whole life I wanted to learn more about how they think, feel, and learn. Having learned both the old and new in dog training I discovered and learned that physical punishment is not the most effective form of dog training. In fact, My research shows that it degrades the relationship more than one may think. Turning away from Traditional training I decided to Form a more Balance approach that allows people and their dog to communicate on a more Positive level. In response to the lack of dog trainers utilizing a more positive approach, I decided to form Companion K9 Dog Training, INC utilizing a more Positive Reinforcement Training.
