Hudson Barks – approach to dog training and dog walking surrounds complete wellness. Using positive reinforcement methods, the focus is on the dog’s environment, physical and emotional state and behavior.
The behaviors that we want to teach or modified, are introduce by pairing the desired behaviors with high valued rewards, i.e. food, toys, praise or using environmental elements that dogs like. Other rewards include, going out for walks, playing with a stick, or approaching other dogs. When corrections are introduced, these are humane –always using the least evasive approach such as ignoring the unwanted behaviors or isolating the dog momentarily from something or someone the dog finds super interesting or wants! (Association and conditioning). The dog is rewarded when the desired behavior is performed. We are not concerned with dominance or intimidation or having authority over the dog.
