Understanding Your Pet's Behavior

At Barer Pet Behavior and Dog Training LLC, We believe that understanding your pet's behavior is the first step toward successful pet training. From recognizing their body language to identifying their unique personality traits, gaining insight into your pet's behavior can help you forge a stronger bond with your furry friend.

Tips to know

To teach your dog/pet QUIET your dog has to be quiet.

Rewards happen after the behavior; Bribes happen before the behavior. Dogs get wise to bribes. Plus, you will always have to use what you are bribing the dog/pet with i.e. food.

To use desensitization and counter conditioning you must keep your pet under threshold . You don't want to accidentally reward the behavior we are trying to get rid of.
