And it that spirit, she is committed to continuing to help you find the right trainer for you and your dog through her referral page. You can access a list of positive reinforcement trainers and other dog pros by visiting the Good Dog Santa Cruz referral page.

Should you use food and toys in training?
Yes, food, toys, play and other things your dog finds rewarding will jump-start learning and make training enjoyable for both the dog and handler.
What does it mean to be a positive reinforcement trainer?
That means that we do not use manipulation, intimidation, coercion, or pain in training. We do not use choke chains, pinch collars or shock collars.
