Training by certified pet dog trainer Debbie Lumley CPDT-KA. My training method is based on operant conditioning If you need help with your dog's bad behavior: biting, leash pulling, digging, excessive barking, nipping, not coming when called, rushing out the door, general bad manners, or lack of obedience , I can help you. I can travel to your home for any of my services or I have a fenced in arena for my training classes where your dog learns the obedience commands and you are then instructed on how to give the verbal cues and hand signals. I conduct a evaluation of the problem(s) you are having with your dog(s) and offer personalized training or behavior changes to fit your lifestyle as well as work with positive reinforcement during the learning process.
students at down-stay command!

First, you should understand that there are two components to "training" and they are frequently mixed. There is the kind of training that solves behavioral problems. There is also the kind of training that creates a command-response pattern. It is perfectly possible to have a dog that heels, sits, and stays perfectly and digs out all your marigolds. Conversely, you may have a dog that does not destroy things in your house nor jump up on people, but does not sit or heel. For purposes of clarity, I consider the former type of training as "behavior modification" and the latter type as "obedience training."
I aspire with this philosophy and definition therefore have pasted it with in honor of the original quote. Debbie Lumley
