When I first started my carrier in Brazil, training was based on dominance and punishment. For the first 3 months I used those tools, but I always felt uncomfortable doing it. So I decided to study in the UK and learn more.
When studying behavioural science, I realised how much those techniques affect our dogs. In the past 5 and a half years, I focused on getting practical results while respecting dogs welfare 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.
