OUR APPROACH

Just like every other team of trainers, our approach is our own. There’s a place in training for every tool and method. For us, everything begins with our leash and training collar. It’s important to remember dogs don’t speak English. Our canine counterparts communicate primarily through touch, and of course, body language. So, we as COMPETENT leaders must find a way to communicate with our subordinates.

how do we train?

The most asked question is dog training, “Do you use positive reinforcement?” The answer to that question is, absolutely!

Remember, our goal in dog training is to establish a common line of communication between us, the owner, and our companion. We need a means to communicate to our dogs that they’re doing exactly what we want, that’s where positive reinforcement comes in to play. When it comes to the five basic commands (come, sit, down, stay, and heel) we need our pups to perform them for us every time, without treats or clickers, our physical praise is the reward!

THROUGH THE LEASH COMMUNITY OUTREACH ISN’T ABOUT DOG TRAINING… IT’S A MOVEMENT!

The goal of Through the Leash community outreach is to establish a nationwide network of shelters, fosters, rescues and rescuers who truly understand dogs, dog owners, and the needs of both. Through the effort of our team, and the education and training of dog owners we can save the lives of so many!

 

UNTIL WE TRULY UNDERSTAND HOW TO COMMUNICATE WHAT IT IS WE WANT FROM OUR DOGS WE CAN’T BE COMPETENT LEADERS.

Yes, it’s convenient to ask our pups to sit or stay when we need them to.  But ultimately, we train for the wellness and welfare of our dogs.  To do so, we must be able to communicate to our dogs what we expect, and the boundaries we have set for them.  By establishing a line of communication and a mutual trust that is understood by both dog and human alike, we are able to maneuver through any situation with our companion.  A bond develops between dog and dog owner through proper training, a bond that can’t be broken.
