Welcome to Soul 2 Soul Dog Training
Train with your brain, not with pain!
My goal is to provide dog owners with factual, scientific-based knowledge on how their dogs think and learn and show them how they can apply this knowledge in order to teach their dogs new behaviours and let go of unwanted behaviours that disrupt or are detrimental to the health and balance of the dog and its family. As recommended by the American Veterinary Society of Animal Behaviour, I use only positive training methods that create and maintain a happy and joyful trust bond between you and your dog (no aversives). My favorite saying is “Train with your brain, not with pain!” 🙂
Good Morning Carol,
I just wanted to send you a picture to show you our “loose leash” walking…and to say Thank You for everything that you taught us in your puppy obedience class that we took at K9 Awareness with you.
I have to say that it was a most enjoyable experience for all of us. Betsy-Boo learned how to be a good doggie citizen.
We continue to practise what we learned in class each week, and our daily walks have really become most enjoyable.
We walk for an hour each morning, and we bike ride in the afternoon…a good way to enjoy each other’s company.
The walk is so much more enjoyable because Betsy-Boo is learning to sit and wait until she is invited to play, and
she now accepts (with enticement from a treat) that sometimes it will be “on by” instead of play.
Carol, we really enjoyed your class, you made it fun for all of us, and we learned the basics to help us with our beautiful dog.
Thanks so much!
Deborah, Michael and Betsy-Boo
