The science of behavior and learning has grown over the past few decades and our strategies for training have evolved to match this knowledge. Today we understand, more than ever before, about how animals learn and how best to teach them. At Train with Trust, we know that behavior always serves a purpose for animals and that we can modify behavior by better addressing each animal’s unique needs.
Research and hands-on practice have demonstrated time and again, that the use of rewards for desired behavior; opportunities for appropriate physical and mental activity; and careful arrangement of an animal’s environment are the best tools for behavior change. This thoughtful, compassionate approach helps animals to succeed in their relationships with us.
