Kelly's Training Approach



* Positive * Rewards Based * Fun * Effective * Humane *


With Kelly's love and passion for animals it was clear what she wanted to do with her life. As an ABC Certified Dog Trainer, Certified in Pet First Aid & CPR, and the Founder of Dog Days Rescue Kelly is highly experienced in all aspects of dog care and training.
Kelly's training approach is all about positive reinforcement. It is important that you and your dog can effectively learn together using methods and techniques that are positive and comfortable for the both of you.
Positive Reinforcement dog training works by using praise and positive actions or rewards, rather than punishment or correctional actions, to teach your dog right from wrong. The key with my training approach is to determine what it is that motivates your dog, and use that motivator as a reward upon correct performance. You can use treats, toys, physical affection, verbal praise or a combination of any of those, to reward your dog for correct behavior.


It is true that each dog has its own personality, intelligence, tolerance, and trainability.
If you compared two teachers: One who shouts constantly and gives you a whack when you mess up, while the other firmly but gently corrects your mistakes, praises your successes, and makes learning fun. Who do you think you'd learn the most from?
Well, your dogs are no different. You can train a dog to do anything canines are capable of doing with good, positive reinforcement and conditioning.

Kelly is a firm believer that anyone who wants to develop good behavior and obedience

in a dog while at the same time, have fun and build a harmonious happy relationship with your canine friend should learn to apply the skills of positive reinforcement dog training.
