Training Philosophy

There are many trainers in the world that will tell you, “We use the best training methods and get fast results”. That is fine, but did you ever stop to consider or even ask what type of methods they use? I will tell you upfront, that we are a positive-only training method company. The training techniques I employ are not based on an opinion I formed while training my own dogs, nor are they methods I believe work the best. They are, however, based on scientific fact and principles and are the standard of the world’s best animal trainers (captive, domestic, or pet).

ÜberDog is a positive-only, clicker training company. What does this mean to you? It means that you do not have to hurt your dog to get the outcome you want! What it means is the total opposite!!! Dogs will only repeat behaviors that are rewarding to them, if that happens to be the ability to interact with you (you give him a cookie, play ball, or play tuggy), then they can’t be busy getting themselves into trouble (chewing your shoes, ripping up pillows, digging in your flower bed… you get the picture).

Training should not be a time to dread. It should be a time both you and your dog look forward to. It should be a fun, educational, and inspiring experience for your whole family!

How our Training works:

Here at UberDog we use positive reinforcement training and employ the use of clickers. Clicker Training is a scientifically proven method that allows the animal to have a say in their training and make choices. So what happens when your dog gets the correct answer? The dog will get a “click” and then a treat! What about when a dog doesn’t do what we ask? The dog just does not get a “Click” or earn the treat, simple as that.

We make sure that we set up our learners, both four legged and two legged, to have success while training. We make sure that everyone involved in the training process has a clear understanding of what our goals are and how we are planning to achieve those goals. We encourage our students to ask questions and ask for help when they are not clear on something or are unsure on how to proceed while practicing.
