Our Philosophy

Our Philosophy

 

jillrunningUntil recently, there was little information available on canine cognition and behaviour. Researchers around the world are now taking canine science seriously and are revealing just how complex and fascinating dogs really are. Thankfully, this research is helping dog trainers and enthusiasts work with dogs more effectively and humanely.
At the Noble Hound, we do our best to stay on top of the most current developments in canine research and are proud advocates for positive, force-free dog training. The Noble Hound strongly opposes the use of verbal and physical punishment, and will never use training methods such as pinning, alpha rolling, leash yanking, hitting, yelling or intimidating. We believe in teaching dogs what they need to know in order to keep them safe and happy and we do this through a positive, reward-based training system.
