Dog Training in Carlsbad

At Hot Dog On A Leash, we believe in positive reinforcement, motivation, and moderation. As is the case in most arguments or discussions, the truth usually can be found in the middle ground. Just as with children, we believe in rewards for good behavior and correction at the level that fits the dog’s personality, size, age, and willingness. We utilize flat collars for the most delicate breeds and temperaments, slip collars for the average situation and average temperament, and pinch collars for the very tough breeds and dominant personalities. We believe in using the word “No” (or equivalent word) in association with a correction. Corrections can be instinctual corrections such as bad tastes, smells, or sounds, in addition to collar corrections. We believe in teaching the dog to make their own decision based upon proper communication of desired behaviors.
