J9’s K9s uses motivational, reward-based training methods. We incorporate lots of food, petting, praise and play in our training. Reward-based training, often referred to as “positive reinforcement”, is a wonderful relationship builder between canines and humans and helps create a dog that willingly obeys his owner, rather than obeying out of fear of being corrected. Not only do reward-based training methods work the best – they’re a heck of a lot more fun!
