At Tried and True Canines, we believe that every dog has the ability to learn through positive reinforcement training methods. We advocate the use of reward-based methods that aim to create a fun and safe learning environment for everyone. We believe that training a dog using these methods is the most effective and ethical way to communicate with your dog. 


Science has shown repeatedly that the use of positive reinforcement dog training methods can have a positive psychological effect on dogs. Research has shown that dogs taught with these methods display an increased optimism and confidence, as well as a stronger connection with their owners and more long-lasting results from training. Our goal is to create a rewarding environment for learning that fosters teamwork and relationship building through modern, reward-based methods that simultaneously teaching your dog the behaviors that help them be successful.
