Positive Reinforcement. The definition of Postive Reinforcement is, "a very powerful and effective tool to help SHAPE and CHANGE behavior. Positive Reinforcement works by presenting a motivating item to the person (dog) after the desired behavior is exhibited, making the behavior more likely to happen in the future."
At Arkansas Duck Dogs and Gunnerbrae Kennels, we base our programs off of the main two words, SHAPE and CHANGE behaviors. Our main focus is to SHAPE wanted behaviors, and CHANGE unwanted behaviors. Our desire at Gunnerbrae is to bring out the best in the dog, but also, enjoying its time in and outside of training. We believe that this accelerates the learning process, while also keeping the drive, style, class, and performance that we desire to see.
