Owner, Janine Pierce, CPDT-KA and her crew at J9’s K9s are passionate in their belief that dog training should be fun!

In recent years, dog training has changed dramatically. More and more trainers are using positive reinforcement as their primary tool to reform behavior, minimizing punishment and corrections. The result is a dog who responds to cues with enthusiasm and joy, instead of a slinking, flattened dog who obeys out of fear of correction.

The way your dog acts is a combination of innate (genetic) and learned behaviors. Whether or not you realize it, every moment you are with your dog you are training your dog by the way you respond to him. Training continues even when you’re not present; your canine friend’s behavior is created and changed by whatever he finds to be most rewarding. It’s up to you as his human partner to set up an environment and respond to him in ways that create desirable behaviors.

The wonderful secret to the process is… DOG TRAINING IS FUN!
