Our Philosophy -
Loyal Companions In-Home and Online Training uses positive reinforcement training techniques. These techniques are based on the psychology of how animals, including dogs and cats, think and learn. We use a combination of lure/reward training, reward training, and/or clicker training.
Our goal is to train your pet to be an obedient member of the family and also to strengthen your loving and trusting bond with him/her.
With our training methods your pet will be motivated to learn and will enjoy the training sessions. Since we reward your petsí good behavior, that behavior increases and any inappropriate behavior decreases.
Our methods are also easy and enjoyable for you, the owner, to learn. Even small children can learn to train the family pet.
