Behavior Modification

The techniques most commonly used in our behavior modification include classical conditioning, desensitization, counterconditioning, response substitution, and shaping. WE NEVER USE PUNISHMENT! While it is claimed that punishment is frequently used with varying degrees of success, few people use punishment correctly. "Dominance" training techniques that encourage owners to assert leadership through physical confrontations are also not used or recommended. Multiple studies have shown that training based on punishments or confrontations are more likely to lead to fear, avoidance, and increased aggression. Dogs trained with rewards have fewer behavioral problems and are less fearful.

We address the emotions not just suppress them!
