Yay saying, not nay-saying
Can you imagine never saying “no” to your dog? We can. And we don’t. If we had our way, no pup would ever hear “No! No! Bad dog!” again. That’s the concept behind our company name.
At Yes! Yes! Good Dog! We know that all pup problems can be solved using only positive reinforcement. It’s all about helping a dog make rewarding choices by saying yes at exactly the right moment. We rely on shaping – catching the dog doing what we want her to do – lying quietly, coming when we call, walking beside us without pulling on the leash. Then we say “yes” by rewarding that behavior with the things the dog loves most, whatever that may be – treats, pets, car rides, and playing fetch.
Being a good dog can be a good time. We work to build a trust connection by setting an example as a fair and reliable pack leader, not a bully. We build willing cooperation for a gratifying working relationship with each pooch. We want dogs to be happy behaving themselves. We set pups up to be good at being good. Dogs are like people in some ways. They want a job to do and they want to be successful at it.
Sound like bones on the brain beliefs? Prepare to be amazed at how fast saying “yes” works and you’ll be nodding your head, too.
