Our approach

At Dogs Trust we train dogs using reward based methods, and do not advocate the use of any training equipment which changes behaviour by causing pain or fear in dogs.

  • Reward based training enhances the bond between dog and owner
  • It is easier for dogs to learn if we reward them for doing the right behaviours rather than telling them off when they get things wrong
  • Dogs which are trained with rewards enjoy learning - they are a partner in the training sessions and often 'offer' new behaviours to see if they get a reward
  • Reward based training will not cause pain or injury to dogs
  • Reward based training does not rely on making dogs worried or frightened, so there is less danger of causing problem behaviours
  • Reward based training works to change behaviour
