unleash your dogs full potential

TRAINING PHILOSOPHY

TIMING

We have 1.3 seconds to influence our dog’s understanding of cause and effect. Sometimes we have even less time. Having great timing is critical to clear communication with our dog.

CONSISTENCY

We must provide a consistent set of rules for our dog. This is important to maintain to minimize conflict within your dog. The more consistent we are about creating and maintaining behaviors, the faster these behaviors become habitual.

MARKERS

One of the first steps of the training process includes charging the marker with something that’s meaningful.

Through this, an action that is ordinarily mundane to the dog (the sound of a clicker, a vocalized command, etc.) obtains meaning through following it with what the dog wants (for example, food). This is how your dog will learn to respond to all of your commands.

During this process, we believe it’s important to understand the timing between the cue (the marker) and the reward. All we want is to mark the specific behavior that we desire from the dog. We are careful to include a split-second delay between giving the marker and reaching for or delivering the reward. This way, your dog understands the difference between the marker and the reward. Otherwise, dogs can become confused by things like misplaced body language, potentially ruining their training.

Motivation

What will make a dog work? Food, pets, a ball or toy; anything physical that they enjoy.

We extinguish behaviors with correction collars that provide an uncomfortable feeling. We can also withhold rewards to create a negative, and make bad things go away to create a positive experience. We use positive and negative reinforcement and punishment, classical and operant conditioning.

A review from a wonderful customer

“Before we met Dillon @ Full Potential K9 our rescue German Shepherd dog Luna was skittish and afraid of people. She had attacked our other dogs in our house and showed severe aggression towards people when they came in our home. She wouldn’t pay attention to me and wouldn’t listen to any commands. We hired Dillon for a half hour 3x a week for private lessons for 3 months. Dillon provided us with research on proper collars and a place bed we should use and purchase. I can now take her places and she will mind me very well. We thank you Dillon for helping us have a dog that will listen and not bark at everyone she sees.”
