Not jump on people<br /> Be able to be left alone with a trusted&nbsp; person other than the owner and<br /> a calmly accept the situation.</p> <p align="center">&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;About Dog-Gone Smart<br /> Dog-Gone Smart was established in 2007, by Roman Bijan.<br /> Roman is a highly skilled trainer/instructor,who does not believe on using harsh<br /> compulsive training methods. Roman&#39;s goal is to offer a practical effectively<br /> in-home training&nbsp; program that will produce a highly motivated dog. Training<br /> is available to all dog-owners living in the West End of Toronto and is the<br /> pick of the litter for the professional minded.</p> <p align="center">&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;My Training Philosophy.</p> <p align="center">I have a complete understanding&nbsp; of all the components of ope rant&nbsp; conditioning,<br /> positive reinforcement,negative punishment,and positive punishment and negative reinforcement.</p> <p align="center">My training method is a combination of&nbsp; using meaningful rewards and proven<br /> scientific methods. I go beyond the meaning of dog obedience training and<br /> teach the dog-owner the importance of inter-species communication.<br /> My philosophy is to&rdquo;Train with the Brain ,Not Pain.&rdquo;.<br /> One&nbsp; of the reasons that I embrace positive reinforcement and negative punishment<br /> is because these techniques&nbsp; are more foregoing&nbsp; than techniques that involve physical aversives.</p> <p align="center">&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; The Dog-Gone Smart Difficulty System</p> <p align="center">&nbsp; Many dog trainers use their own judgment to decide when to make things harder.<br /> The Dog-Gone Smart method is more systematic. I use the Push, Drop or Stick<br /> method. In this system, the owner is required to complete five repetitions in a row<br /> each exercise and keep track of how many his dog does correctly.<br /> Based&nbsp; how he performs , the owner will do one of the following:</p> <p align="center">Push-go to the next level of difficulty<br /> Drop-&nbsp; back&nbsp; down to the previous level of difficulty.<br /> Stick- stay at the current level of difficulty and do more repetitions.<br /> <br /> Private dog-walking sessions.</p> <p align="center">Special private walks in a local area. Good for dogs that may need some<br /> behaviour modification for such problems as:dog aggression,chasing wildlife<br /> ,jumping on people ,pulling on the leash,trying to bolt across a busy street<br /> You will see&nbsp; improving results in your dog&#39;s behaviour. The walks are a combination<br /> of exercising and training&nbsp; at the same time. Not only does your dog get<br /> a good exercise, he also is taught on how to be a good neighbour.<br /> Each session is one full hour.</p> <p align="center"></p> </td> </tr> </tbody> </table> <p></p> <p></p> <p></p>
