Leigh has twin goals: first, to train dogs and their people while making the learning process enjoyable, and second, to show that you don’t need to use outdated, force-based training methods to train dogs properly. Training should be fun for you AND for your dog just as it was for Allie and Leigh; training with Animal Behavior Consulting IS fun. Best of all, fun, positive training will build an enjoyable life-long relationship between you and your canine companion.
At Animal Behavior Consulting, we don’t use fear or pain, we use our brains to train!
