Training Philosophy

  • To respect and listen to each individual's concerns.
  • To take into consideration and to understand everyone's limits.
  • To observe clearly, and quantify logically, the tools needed to solve the problems that need to be addressed, as every situation is different.
  • To set both owners and animals up for success—in other words, from a point of success, build success with positive reinforcement.
  • To ignore mistakes and focus on the skills needed to attain everyone's individual goal, using only positive reinforcement to arrive there.

Jay strongly believes that there are NO stupid questions and encourages clients to ask since we all learn through the give-and-take of ideas.

As a Karen Pryor Academy Certified Training Partner, Jay has signed a pledge to teach and train using the force-free principles and techniques that have been taught in the Karen Pryor Academy for Animal Training & Behavior (KPA) and always in a manner that is consistent with the KPA approach to behavior change and learning.
