My Promise to You
I will never need or want to hurt or scare your dog in order to train your dog or to change negative associations to positive ones.
I will never use tools designed to poke, pinch, choke, shock, or otherwise hurt your beloved companion.
I will always endeavor to guide you in training and handling habits that result not only in better behavior, but in a stronger bond between you and your dog, benefiting both of you in all areas of your life together.
