Training the Ultimate K9

training1

My vision for K9 Central has always been to provide a meeting place for like-minded people who have a passion for dogs.

I want to reach out and spark this passion in as many people as possible, because it is through this passion and, yes, empathy towards our four-legged friends, that we can make a true difference in this world.

Because every dog deserves a chance. And every dog deserves a great home. By telling more people about how to care for and love their dogs, the less likely that dog ends up in a shelter and abandoned.

K9 Central is now in its twelth year of business. Every year we seem to improve, add, and refine. Change is ongoing. But this year I am really excited about our training program. Why? Our instructors are passionate about teaching people. They want to give you the tools you need to communicate and have fun with your dog.Isn’t this what it is all about? Building the human-canine bond that rests on a solid base of mutual love and respect? This is why at K9 Central we teach only positive, motivational training methods.

What is Motivational  Training?

Positive motivational means adding something pleasant to increase a behaviour. For example; you ask your dog to sit, you reward him with his favourite treat or praise. Not only does the reward reinforce the preceding response it increases in frequency and increases the likelihood that the behaviour will be repeated in the future. Any behaviour that is reinforcement, your dog will repeat.

A growing collection of recent studies is proving that motivational training of dogs is much more effective and ultimately successful than training involving dominance and punishment  . Some of the studies even demonstrated that training involving punishment actually created additional problem behaviors – certainly an outcome no dog guardian deliberately sets out to achieve. Motivational training has been scientifically proven to be the most effective and quickest way to train your dog. You can teach your dog virtually anything using motivational training from tricks to obedience, to solving behavioural issues such as aggression, this type of training is fun for both which ensures quicker learning and creates a trusting relationship based on trust and respect. So how do we do this? By offering everything from basic training instruction to encouraging you to join in the fun world of dog sports. From puppy to the ultimate canine! We promise you that if you join us on this journey you will have the most fun, the most rewarding experiences. You will also have a dog that is your partner and a happy, well-adjusted member of the family.
