Scientific research supports the efficacy of reward-based training to address unwanted and challenging behaviors.
Our behavior modification and training focus on reinforcing desirable behaviors, avoiding the reinforcement of undesirable behaviors, and strive to address the underlying emotional state and motivations that are driving the undesirable behavior.
It's the behavioral science approach based from studies on how dogs learn. Teach your dog; turn on two-way communication; live an enriched life enjoying each other everyday.
The LIMA code - LIMA is an acronym for the phrase “Least Intrusive, Minimally Aversive”. LIMA describes a trainer or behavior consultant who uses the least intrusive, minimally aversive strategy out of a set of humane and effective tactics likely to succeed in achieving a training or behavior change objective. LIMA adherence also requires consultants to be adequately educated and skilled in order to ensure that the least intrusive and aversive procedure is used.
Like all things in life, dog training is a journey of experience. No two dogs are fully identical in their personalities, demeanor, and motivation factors. Every class and every encounter is an enriching experience. At LovePup Training, our training mission is to be your bridge in communicating with your unique furbaby.
Training techniques and practical exercises can be learned in a class setting. However, many assumptions have to be met for the group class setting to insure desired results.
In contrast, private and personalized sessions with a certified dog trainer allow for specific catering of training plan to your specific needs, highlight unique focus areas, and promptly correct undesirable reactions. Being able to start training in the safe environment of home is an added bonus for your furbaby to master the lesson before demonstrating in the "real distracting world".
