Collaborative Care and Enrichment – Creating Partnerships for Positive Results!
"Training is no longer something we do to animals but something we do with animals. It is a conversation. We want participation rather than compliance. Let dogs choose the behaviors they are most comfortable with rather than tell them what to do." - Chirag Patel, PPG Training and Behavior Workshop, April 2018.
