Bark Avenue Methods & Philosophy
In interactions with our dogs, Bark Avenue employees use only positive reinforcement dog training methods, based on canine behavioral science. We use natural dog motivators like toys, treats, praise, and attention to elicit the desired behavior. Dogs are never subjected to punishment, threats, yelling, or aversive techniques involving leashes or collars.
