Fun Facts About Pet Training

It is easier to teach a behavior you want than punish a behavior you don't want. Punishment does not teach your pet what you want.

Punishment will make fear and aggression worse.

Dogs learn by association. If a dog has a bad association with something, someone, other animals... they may be fearful/aggressive.

We teach your pet how to change those associations from negative to positive.

Training your dog is an investment in their health and happiness. At Barer Pet Behavior and Dog Training LLC, we are committed to providing exceptional training services that cater to your pet's unique needs and personality. We understand that every pet is different, and tailor our training methods to suit them best. We look forward to being a part of you and your pet's journey towards a positive and fulfilling life.
