Frequently Asked Questions

Is this program considered "Purely Positive "?

“Purely Positive” dog training is a training method that focuses solely on positive reinforcement and rewards, without any use of punishment or correction. We prefer to use “Positive Reinforcement,” as we reinforce good behavior with praise, treats, or other positive stimuli. However, unlike “Purely Positive” training, we will address dangerous or bad behavior if necessary. If your dog likes to chase cars on busy streets, we certainly don’t want to ignore that behavior.

What's the difference between Clicker & Marker Training?

Clicker training and marker training are both forms of positive reinforcement training. Still, they differ in the specific type of “marker” used to communicate to the dog that it has performed the desired behavior. A “marker” can be a verbal cue like a “YES!” Clicker training is just what it sounds like: a clicker marks the exact moment a dog performs the desired behavior. The choice between the two often comes down to personal preference and the dog’s specific needs.

Who is this program designed for ?

This program is for any dog owner who is ready to begin their pup’s dog training journey with an early introduction to basic obedience commands. It is also perfect for dog owners who aren’t yet comfortable with e-collar training or other traditional balanced dog training methods.

What rewards are used in positive reinforcement training?

We use different training rewards for different dogs. Treats are the most commonly used reward in positive reinforcement training as they are highly motivating for most pups. But we may also use clickers, toys, verbal praise, playtime, etc.

Is there an age requirement or breed restriction?

Although there is no specific age requirement, if you have a new puppy, you should call us first so we can decide together the best time to get your puppy started.

My husband and I decided we needed training for our 11 month old chocolate lab, who was pulling excessively and listening when he felt like it 🫠 Christine was amazing to work with, and informative from the beginning. We appreciated the daily updates with pics/videos. Our guy is a new man 🤣 So glad we decided to do the training.

We sent Buster, our Labrador Retriever, to training about two years ago just shy of his first birthday. Karina was his trainer and she was amazing! He went from pulling so hard (knocking me down several times) to walking so obediently next to us. We are constantly getting complimented on his behavior and are always recommending this training to everyone. Hoping to bring him on one of the walks soon.

I have a good and trustworthy account manager that allows me to withdraw my profits anytime I want and I can monitor everything going on in my account when she is busy trading with her expert team and I don't have issues with pending withdrawals. I must admit that she's a very honest woman. I have no way of thanking her than letting people know about her services and recommend her for everyone to trade on her platform. She's 100% accurate and up-to-date.

Dirk from Off Leash was an amazing trainer. He knows dogs and how to get results through the right balance of repetition, kindness and clarity. Very thankful for the experience. After two weeks with Dirk, Hank returned to us happy and excited to engage with people (just as before) but with real manners. Now we can walk Hank on a leash without getting dragged down the street or off the leash. He no longer jumps up on people when they arrive at our home and he comes on command… none of which was possible pre Dirk/off Leash.
