Commonly Asked Question:
"Do you use food in your training?"
Food can be a very valuable reinforcer (paycheck!) for dogs during training. It's one of a very short list of things that dogs are born already knowing is good. While most dogs easily learn to enjoy praise, petting and play — all of which also make good rewards — food still holds a special place in their mind due to its primal nature.
Some people express concern about using food in training, worried they will create a dog who will only work if he knows there's food. This is a valid concern, as it can happen if food is mis-used. The trick is to make sure that food is being used as a reward and not a bribe. There's a big difference!
READ WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT JASON & HIS TRAINING:
Mike Walters: My family and I love Jason's class and style of teaching. Our dog not only learned basic obedience but we also learned how our dog thinks and how to best handle future problems that may arise. Thank you Jason.
Sarah Lindgren-Akana: Since working with Jason Lake I feel my level of training has been elevated to a place it's never been before. He's ability to read and assess each dog is nothing short of incredible. He understands the best way to reach each animal and never approaches two the same. If one method doesn't quite fit, he has a million other ways to reach out to you and your dog. He really helps you understand how to become a trainer and get through to your dog in a positive way. Whether it's for simple pet obedience, or competitive training, I highly recommend Jason and Prodogz.
Patricia Breidenthal: I have had very good experience with Prodogz and have found Jason Lake to be one of the best dog trainers that I have ever encountered. He is up to date with proper procedures, and is an excellent trainer to all that he encounters. Because of his many years of experience, he is able to "read" most dogs in ways that I have never before imagined. On a scale of one to ten, I would give him an eleven.
