* The American Veterinary Society of Animal Behavior (AVSAB), The International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants, along with the Association of Professional Dog Trainers and The Pet Professional Guild all strongly caution against the use of pain and fear in dog training and behavior modification.

Based on current scientific evidence, AVSAB recommends that only reward-based training methods are used for all dog training, including the treatment of behavior problems.


We do not employ the use of prong collars, e-collars, or choke chains.
