As I stated in the “about” page, I am a cross-over trainer. I was brought up with the belief that training and behavior modification were two separate aspects of dog raising.
Training had to do with tricks and certain behaviors.
The light bulb moment for me was when, on a forum of all places, another cross-over trainer had stated that reactivity is a behavior. That made sense. And so my journey across the line of dominance and control to understanding and benevolence began.
So this week I am going to focus on why training is important, methods, and tools.
