ST. LOUIS, Sept. 21, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Positive reinforcement training is the future in dog obedience, and more
Students looking to become dog trainers may be unaware of the different methods used in obedience training. It becomes the responsibility of the educators to set the stage for success and push the agenda of improving the lives of pets and the professionals that work with them.
The dog training school at The Academy of Pet careers has worked for the past decade to eliminate the use of punishment in their obedience programs. With the introduction of a new head training instructor, Jody Epstein, and her focus in Animal Behavior, every dog training course is now focused on reward-based methods (using positive reinforcement). Additional information about positive reinforcement training can be found at https://www.theacademyofpetcareers.com/dog-training-school/positive-reinforcement-training/.
This transition coincides with their Pet Empowerment agenda, which hopes to bring awareness to pet abuse and help pet owners and professionals better enrich the pets in their care. Learn about the Pet Empowerment Pledge and help save a pet's life!
