Training Methods

Application of the most up-to-date dog training methods on modern Learning  Theory and Behaviour using Classical Conditioning and Operant  Conditioning. (clicker / marker training)

Reward-based training (food, toy, play and external rewards) with  positive reinforcement for desired behaviour. If you are willing to reward your dog for his engagement and progress in learning, this is the school for you.

Undesired behaviour is either ignored or re-focused/re-directed and alternative behaviours are trained.

Swiss animal protection laws forbid the use of pinch-collars, electric-collars,  choke chains and devices which cause the dog physical or psychological  discomfort. Devices that use electric shocks, painful sounds or chemicals are also forbidden. These and other positive-punishment devices will not be allowed or used in my school. Also dog owners using severe or intimidating  “training methods” on their dogs will not be tolerated.
