  • Strengthen the Bond with Your Dog

    We believe that training your dog makes him a more confident, happy and successful member of your home. Training strengthens your bond with your dog. At Unleashed Joy Dog training, we use the most up-to-date, positive training methods available. In our group classes, your dog will be able to work along side other dogs successfully. We will teach them what our words mean such as “sit,” “down,” “leave it,” etc. They will learn self control and how to be a more polite member of not only your home, but of society.

    Our training methods are well-documented and proven to work more effectively and efficiently. We use a combination of classical and operant conditioning. We help your dog learn desired behaviors by positively reinforcing them, and decrease undesired behaviors by eliminating reinforcement of them. We don’t advocate a human/dog relationship based on fear and/or coercion, and do not support or use choke collars, prong collars, shock collars or any aversive techniques that may damage your dogs trust in you or in humankind. You’ve made a long term commitment that requires teaching, guidance and love.
