Kawa Farms K-9 Training is committed to the humane treatment and training of your family dog. There are a lot of ways to train a dog, and it never ceases to amaze me how much many people hurt their dogs in an attempt to train them. However, IF WE ARE GOING TO BUILD OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH OUR DOGS AND FEEL GOOD ABOUT THE WAY WE TRAIN THEM. OUR METHODS MUST BE POSITIVE AND HUMANE. Positive reinforcement training just makes sense. It works, it’s based on science, it is simple and most importantly your dog will love it. Overtime you and your dogs bond will develop and strengthen so that you won’t be able to imagine living without your dog.
