Kevin believes it is vitally important for owners to give their dogs the opportunities and tools they need to live successfully in a human world. A dog that is given consistent guidance from an early age grows up to be a confident dog. Education brings security, security brings confidence, and a confident dog has no need to show anxiety-based behaviors.
 
The strongest relationships between dogs and humans are based on cooperation and kindness rather than a human dominance/animal submission methodology that is central to outdated traditional training methods. Positive training helps to establish and maintain a connection that increases trust and therefore creates a stronger bond between dog and owner, because if your dog feels good about you, he will be a happier and better-behaved dog.

Ultimately, positive training results in a dog who follows an owner because it wants to rather than following out of fear, while traditional training uses punitive methods to force a dog to behave, often resulting in a ‘quick fix' that never truly identifies the root cause of the misbehavior and promotes insecurity.
