POSITIVE DOG TRAINING - "CALMNESS LEADS TO REWARD"

During the course we will teach you how to train and communicate with your dog using our uniquely developed “Calmness Leads to Reward” ® formula for dog training & dog behaviour.     

“Calmness Leads to Reward” ® is a force free, pioneering, innovative, positive dog training and behaviour management philosophy.  Uniquely developed by Keith Mathews 'The Dog Guru' and formulated from his practical work and 30 years ongoing scientific study of canine behaviour.

This system has proved a huge hit globally and is proven by the fact that not only does Keith conduct monthly training programmes in Northern Ireland, but he also delivers regular monthly workshops to other dog trainers and behaviourists in Scandinavia and other parts of Europe.

It's about teaching, before training and uses only positive gentle motivating methods, based on the timely consistent, reward of affection, with love, without the need for motivation using treats or gadgets.
