Dog Training School(Karen Pryor Academy)

I'm enrolling in Karen Pryors' dog training school to further my abilities as a positive reinforcement dog trainer.  I've been teaching dog classes since 1994 using techniques that do not allow any aversive techniques.  3 years ago I moved to an area where there are no schools that offer TRULY positive techniques. Most schools fall back on aversive techniques instead of spending the extra time needed to train more complex behaviors using positive methods.  My goal after graduating is to open a dog training school that will allow me to expand my reach into the community in NorthWest Arkansas. I'm an advocate for dogs through positive reinforcement training. By teaching people how dogs learn and think, I will be able to help dog owners create a life long relationship built on trust, consistency, understanding and most importantly fun.  Thank you so much for taking the time to read my gofundme page.  Help me help the dogs of Northwest Arkansas.
