At Genius Dogs, we balance training with a strong emphasis on positive reinforcement.
The correction tools we use are designed to enact change in the gentlest way possible. Our trainers set your dog up to succeed so we can reward them for good behavior, instead of setting them up for failure and correcting their behavior.
How To Train Your Dog
Generally, there are two schools of thought on how to teach a dog – set them up to fail and correct them for failing, or set them up to succeed and reward them for their success. The Genius Dogs Training Method is set up to be the latter – for all of the dogs we train, we set them up to succeed and then reward them for doing it right. It takes more time and more patience to do it this way, but it also has more long term positive effects and creates less stress for the dog throughout the process.
