Approach to Training

At Lucky Dog Training Center, we train using positive reinforcement, often called "clicker training." There are many ways to train a dog, but we believe this method is the easiest, kindest, and most reliable way to train. We focus on teaching dogs what we want them to do, not what we don't. This science-based approach is used worldwide by animal trainers in all disciplines, such as training zoo animals to allow medical care or training chickens in order to better train dogs. Because of this, the end result is a dog who enjoys working with you and behaving! We offer group training classes in the following categories: Puppy, Pet Manners, Agility, Rally & Obedience, and Specialty, which includes things like tricks and therapy dog preparation. If you're interested in private lessons instead of or in addition to group classes, you can learn more about what we can cover in privates here.
