Maryland Dog Training Company Launches New Positive Reinforcement Program

Silver Spring Maryland - Pawz For Health In home dog training , one of the acknowledged leaders

in the dog training industry, is delighted to announce the launch of their latest dog training program.

The new program focuses on the benefits of positive reinforcement dog training and has been

developed and created by industry expert Janet Oquendo CPDT-KA, ADBC, Certified professional

dog trainer and Assoc. Dog Behaivor Consultant.

Many dog training programs focus on methods which use punitive and intimidating dog training

techniques such as shock collars now called (e-collars) prong and choke collars. These types of

equipment are designed to physically punish dogs using purely negative reinforcement and of course

positive punishment. These “training tools” have been proven to cause serious physical and emotional

damage to dogs and should never be used. The new program which Janet has designed and

developed is scientifically designed to ensure that dog owners, build and maintain a trusting and

positive relationship with their beloved “best friend” using only positive reinforcement dog training


“Dogs are the most kind and loving animals on the planet, there is a reason why they are called man’s

best friend,” said Janet Oquendo of Pawz For Health. “That is why it brings tears to my eyes when I

see people training their dogs using barbaric and painful items such as shock, choke and prong

collars. There is no need to use such training methods, and this was the main driving force behind the

creation of my dog training programs. Ask yourself how you would like to learn something, I doubt

very many people would choose to be punished for every mistake they make. With my programs, our

customers will be able to experience the benefits and pleasure of training their dog in a positive

manner using simple fun and easy to follow techniques.”,8811-colesville-rd-silver-spring,-md-20910-GceJABnHiQA.html
