Al Fresco Tails Pet Sitting is committed to modern training methods rooted in the latest science in the field of animal behavior. Some terms commonly used to describe our methods are ‘positive reinforcement’, ‘reward based’, ‘force free’, and ‘clicker’ training. Every dog is an individual, so we identify what motivates your dog and teach them that great things happen when they make great choices.
Rather than focusing on what we don’t want the dog to do (eg. pulling on leash) we teach the dog what we do want them to do (eg. walk next to us). Focusing on the positive makes training more enjoyable for dogs and humans alike.
We follow the Humane Hierarchy, training dogs without the use of fear, intimidation, pain, or other aversive methods.
