Well-meaning people give lots of advice – “Control your dog!” or “Control your children!” – but how?! With all the conflicting information out there, it’s hard to discern best practices. Get family-friendly solutions that are dog-friendly too. Management and training recommendations are based on the latest science and force-free training methods using the principles of classical and operant conditioning. Your family will gain a greater understanding of your dog and build stronger relationships based on mutual respect and trust (become more Dog Aware™).
