Our Training Philosophy/About Positive Reinforcement


There’s more than one method of dog training. At JHPT, we focus on using reward-based methods based on scientifically sound learning principles. We are committed to making every effort to teach dogs using positive reinforcement and reward instead of outdated methods based in physical punishment, fear, pain, and intimidation.

Gentle, fair, clear and respectful communication based in understanding – which is the foundation of these methods – not only produces dogs who enjoy learning, but helps to build a trusting relationship between dogs and people.
