Certified Dog Trainer by Animal Behavior College -With References
Training Philosophy of ABC: ABC’s Training Program begins by teaching students how to build a proper canine/human relationship. It is our philosophy that creating a relationship built on positive interaction and consistency can often deter future unwanted behavior problems, facilitate faster learning and even solve some existing behavioral challenges.
From there, ABC Students learn how to become a dog trainer by teaching dogs new behaviors through luring, shaping, capturing or molding. ABC’s Training Philosophy follows the scientific behavioral principles of operant conditioning and involves using the least aversive approach possible in every training case.
Animal Behavior College (ABC) believes there are many different types of training methods that work. While the ABC Curriculum primarily focuses on and encourages the use of positive reinforcement training techniques, we also provide our students with an overall education on correction and punishment. Although our bias is toward the use of positive reinforcement, we believe instruction which incorporates a variety of training methods and ideologies will provide the most comprehensive education for our students.
