When taking classes or private lessons at CPT, your trainer will teach you how to communicate to your dog and how best to educate your dog in the manner that is optimal for your dog’s unique temperament. The CPT Trainer will also teach you how to become consistent, so that your dog best understands your wishes and meets your expectations.

YOU WILL LEARN patience, praise, repetition, correction, and communication with your dog. Your DOG WILL LEARN obedience, right from wrong, and what is expected of him or her through the use of love, praise, and positive reinforcement.

The key with this type of training is to determine what it is that motivates your dog, and use that motivator as a reward upon correct performance.

If a trainer, or you, say “good dog” or give the dog a treat after using intimidating body language, saying no, or giving a pull on a collar, then it is not positive reinforcement that is teaching the dog. The dog is actually learning by avoiding something unpleasant! These little subtleties make training fascinating but also can make training complex, frustrating, or difficult to understand.
