There are no bad dogs
MATT BEISNER'S approach is said to be “the cutting edge of dog training”, developing the deepest possible relationship between you and your dog with the least amount of tension. Matt doesn't promote choke chains, shock collars, alpha rolls or other popular aversion techniques. Nor does he rely on clickers, treats and methods intended to create "obedience". At THE ZEN DOG we know that you’re not alone, there is hope and we can help. Because there are no bad dogs.
Rules of Relationship
Rule 1: Respect
We must first respect dogs for who they are, not who we want them to be.
Rule 2: Trust
Trust is the foundation of any healthy relationship, it's how our dogs feel safe.
Rule 3: Love
Love conquers all, including the need to conquer.
Rules of Engagement
Rule 1: Energy
Energy is the one language that every species on the planet speaks.
Rule 2: Sound
Sound is energy, vocalized. It is a very effective tool in creating or correcting a dog's behavior.
Rule 3: Touch
Touch is often the weakest form of communication, especially when correcting a dog.
