Pawsitively Fit offers family oriented, educational and hands-on programs that promote positive reinforcement based training which strengthens the relationship between humans and their canine companions.
Research has shown that positive reinforcement—rewarding a desired behaviour—is an effective and reliable method of teaching new behaviours or changing current behaviours in any physically and mentally healthy animal. In other words, dogs are more likely to repeat behaviours that get rewarded, which is why positive reinforcement works.
There are many reasons to participate in training classes with your dog:
- Training redirects your dog's natural behaviours to acceptable
- Training builds your dog's behavioural repetoire
- The more acceptable behaviours a dog learns, the less room there
is for undesirable behaviours
- Training increases the odds that a dog will stay in the family for his
lifetime rather than be given up due to behaviour issues
