Our Unique Training Methods
The training curriculum is straightforward and comprehensive. Yet, it provides the flexibility required by your individual training needs and objectives. We have set the standards that other organizations have attempted to copy; and we are continually evolving the methods that yield effective training results and safety protocols for you, your dog and those we visit.
CTD employs only …
🗸 Positive reinforcement and correction methods
🗸 Audible (spoken and vocal) commands
🗸 Visual hand signals
🗸 Effusive, loving praise (which, along with treats) increases your dog’s responsiveness
Training will always be fun for you and your dog.
Classes are 60-90 minutes one time a week…But YOU will need to reinforce training every day.
