We are all tools training company, We utilize all four Quadrants of Operant Conditioning, which is a scientifically proven training method, also know as  “Balance Training”. Which means use both rewards/positive reinforcement to encourage behaviors we like and corrections to set boundaries and discourage unwanted behaviors. We utilize positive reinforcement with markers and rewards to teach commands and training tools to create the stability in commands and off leash freedom. 

No, we do not use “shock collars”. We use E Collars have chosen to use the Mini Educator made by E-Collar Technologies which is one of the only humane blunt stimulus options on the market!

The Mini Educator E Collar is designed to provide a low-level, non-harmful stimulation that is adjustable in intensity and duration. It is not a shock collar but rather a tool to communicate with your dog, providing clear and consistent feedback to help them learn and improve their behavior. Overall, we believe in using humane, effective, and safe training methods that prioritize the well-being of your dog.

The beauty of E Collars lies in their unparalleled adjustability to suit every dog’s unique needs. We can effectively train with minimal physical force – even less than what’s typically required with a traditional leash. With E Collars, dogs learn to associate the sensation of the collar with a specific action and quickly learn how to turn it off. Regardless of age, breed, or behavior, E Collars have proven to be the most versatile training tool that produces results while minimizing stress on dogs and their owners.
