When I first started my carrier in Brazil, the training was based on dominance and punishment. I didn't know better and this was what was available for me. For the first 3 months I used those tools. But I always felt uncomfortable doing that. So I decided to study and learn more how to train dogs in a more human way.
When studying behavioural science, I realised how much those techniques affect our dogs. In the past 4 and a half years, I focused on getting practical results while respecting our dogs welfare and will using the behaviour science principles. I'm passionate about cooperative care and using consent in training.
I follow LIMA guidelines, which stand for "Less intrusive and minimal aversive", for any training practice. When working on aggression or training issues I use positive reinforcement and I base my Separation anxiety training in systematic desensitisation.
Those super effective methods will help you to achieve your goals, build a healthy relationship with your dog and set boundaries.
