Rewards-based Training

Puppy training is an especially sensitive skill. Puppies are in the most critical social growth time in their lives, making positive reinforcement essential. At Janet Pet Care, we use only reward-based training, which means, reward the behaviors you like, keep your dogs busy with chewies and things to do, plus manage your puppy to keep him or her safe and able to follow the rules of your home.

And these techniques work for adolescent and adult dogs too. If you have just adopted a dog from a shelter, please invite us to help you set up a safe and fun environment right from the start.

We use positive routines that motivate you and your dog, making learning a blast of fun for everyone. You will get speedy and correct responses that achieve behavior goals like sit, stay, and come when called.

We also use positive reinforcement to control misbehavior such as barking and lunging during walks, pulling on leash, refusing to walk, or barking too much at front door noises.
