How We Train

All of our training is done using science-based positive reinforcement methods to produce a happy and reliable working dog.  Because we are committed to treating both our clients and our dogs with respect, compassion, and fairness, aversive and punitive methods are not a part of our training methods.  Choke collars, prong collars, shock collars and forced ear pinches are never used in our training programs as they are in some. You can be assured that a dog from Aretas has been raised and trained with loving, motivational techniques and respect for the great service these dogs are offering their future partners.
