Dogs care about praise – that’s why we train with positive reinforcement
Remember how happy you were whenever you got a gold star sticker in school? Didn’t it motivate you to do even better the next time? Dogs are the same! Except they don’t care for gold stars, but lots of love and treats. We always reward good behaviour, ignoring bad behaviour. We’re never harsh, and show nothing but love.
Training doesn’t always make for perfect animals, however, which is why we look for friends who embrace the beauty of imperfection like us. You’re not just adopting a pet, you’re helping us continue the journey of a rescued soul.
