      WHY +R

      A dog that is given consistent guidance from an early age grows up to be a confident dog. Education brings security, security brings confidence, and a confident dog has no need to show anxiety-based behaviors.

      • Are hand-selected by Victoria.
      • Train dogs using only positive reinforcement.
      • Avoid force & outdated dominance-based methods.
