Barx Parx trainers promote and utilize positive reinforcement training techniques.
Force-free dog training is a fun, reward based training method which helps to build trust and reinforce the bond between owner and dog. Positive training is incredibly effective and does not have the potential to cause stress, fear and physical injury to our dogs through the application of force, pain or intimidation. Unlike humans, dogs do not understand consequences of their actions so punishment based training approaches only create fear and reactivity, lessening the bond between the pet parent and dog.
