He can be taken on trips and family outings. He’s a member of the family in every sense of the word. The most important benefit of training your dog is safety: your safety, the safety of others, and his own safety. A dog that listens and does what he’s told rarely gets into trouble. Instead of being a slave to a leash or a line, a trained dog is a free dog — he can be trusted to stay when told, not to jump on people, to come when called, and not to chase a cat across the road. For more than 30 years, we have taught dog training classes, seminars, and weeklong training camps.

Primary inducements result in the behavior you want to elicit from the dog, and secondary inducements are commands and signals. By pairing the two, you can condition the dog to respond solely to commands and signals, the ultimate goal of any training. Primary inducements can be pleasant or unpleasant experiences for the dog.

Those behaviors also determine how the dog perceives the world. To give you a better understanding of your dog, we group instinctive behaviors into three drives: ✓ Prey ✓ Pack ✓ Defense These drives reflect instinctive behaviors that your dog has inherited and that are useful to you in teaching him what you want him to learn. Each one of these drives is governed by a basic trait.
