Our Training Methods
Our highly effective method of training was brought on board by Anthony Collazo after studying training methods used by leading guide dog and service dog trainers. We use methods not many trainers use or even know how to use. We only train our dogs using hand signals, voice commands and body language. We NEVER will give your dog a treat for a reward, we will never use a clicker and we will never use E-collars. Can you imagine having to walk around with a pocket full of treats or what happens if you forget your clicker? Then what? Most trainers take the easy way out and use these tools to get the dog to perform commands fairly quickly but what happens when you forget to bring your treats? Is your dog going to understand what you are asking? Most likely not! Most of our neighboring doggie facilities now use our methods after we’ve coached them and have in turn saved many doggie lives. We are proud of our achievements in the industry and invite you to come experience the Smart Start difference!
