LV Dog Resort offers Daniel Chavez, an independent contractor, who has years of experience training dogs under his company "Danny's Dogs"
Dogs are very intelligent and experts at reading our temperament. However, they are not programmable devices that can be "programmed" in a matter of minutes Therefore Danny has to work with owners because they are the biggest influence that they interact with every single day.
There is no magic or quick fix that can bring about the positive change that only training of both dog and owner can.
Danny shares his knowledge of canine behavior and psychology to ensure ongoing improvement and efficient training for years to come; Danny will educate you, the owner, to understand why your dog behaves the way he or she does and offer the optimal solution of what needs to be done to permanently improve it. This eliminates the need to constantly correct bad behavior and instead focuses on positive reinforcement that requires less correction from dog owners. Earning in your dog's trust and respect can help you to understand and bond with your dog faster and easier without pain or intimidation.
His method of working with your dog does NOT include bribes, such as food or treats. Instead, Danny teaches you how to properly reward your dog with toys, food, water, and love.
Danny does not use harsh methods such as prong collars, spray bottles, shock collars, yelling or intimidation. "I will share my knowledge and skill on how to be fair leader 'Not a dictator' so that your dog will trust you and be comfortable and relaxed. This will go a long way in creating a trusting and loving relationship with your dog-a dog that you can take anywhere!
