Humans didn’t invent learning. Animals evolved with the ability to learn. Training is just learning. Dogs like it, we like it and if done well and thoughtfully, it makes our lives and our dogs lives better. Anyone can learn to raise and train their dogs to be well behaved. Through guided training programs and basic obedience, good manners can be achieved. Properly applied, without coercion, aversive techniques, punishment or fear, a behavior can be changed through teaching new skills.
Kris Weckerling has been providing professional training for dogs and their people throughout Colorado and the Denver metro area using modification techniques and positive reinforcement, combined with practical experience based on the scientific principles of animal behavior. Kris can communicate with dogs on a level that’s remarkable and gets results. Communication is necessary in any successful relationship.
