At K9ology we focus on teaching dog owners how to effectively communicate training goals for adaptable, social, and well mannered canine companions. It is vital for the human part of the team to have the knowledge, skills, and ability to consistently work alongside their dogs to achieve results. Dogs which are well trained are a pleasure to be around, enjoy more freedoms, are happier, and are a valued asset in their community. Additionally, dogs with various skills are great social facilitators, improve the quality of life for their owners, and help keep people active.
How do we do it? We advocate the use of force-free training methods based on science to achieve desired results. This means applying a combined approach of psychology, ethology, and biology for a better understanding of the dog. We use training exercises to teach impulse control, manners, and functional skills, while applying behavior modification principles to alter dogs with fear, anxiety, aggression, or compulsions.
