There's nothing more important to your relationship with your dog than training. It's critical to shaping reliable behaviour and creating a happy, well-balanced dog.
Mutt Love Dog Training provides cutting-edge, science-based, solutions for all types of situations. Dog training should be fun, engaging and strengthen the bond between you and your dog. Our approach to training is a lot like our approach to dog walking. We know using positive reinforcement and careful management will enrich our dog's lives and produce reliable results.
Emma Bongers owner of Mutt Love, and our lead walker and trainer, is studying to complete her dog training certification with The Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers (CCPDT). Although the industry does not require certification to be recognized as a dog trainer, Emma is committed to furthering her education. She believes in regulation for the industry. The dog world is full of misinformation so it requires a careful study of the leading Ph.D.'s in animal behaviour science to discern fact from fiction. It's fascinating how the science behind learning is used to shape our dog's responses and change the way they relate to the world. Emma is committed to bringing you the most up-to-date, humane training strategies.
