Is love just ruining your dog and making him/her spoiled? Do you really need to implement structure and rules so he/she understands that you are the boss? Does letting your dog on furniture send a message to  him/her that they can control you? Is "de-privileging" your dog the key to solving his/her behavioral issues? When your dog is upset or stressed should you avoid petting them so that you don't reinforce those feelings?

TBTE is designed for both dog owners and professional trainers - here's some reviews:

I've put so very much work and time into training my dogs and its worked for most behaviors. But I changed to TBTE style and its so much easier and I see changes so much quicker and the behaviors I was having trouble with for years are already getting better in a few days.

Our clients are blown away by the results, as are we. If you want to truly understand canine cognition, creating a thinking dog, working with the most absolutely humane and effective means possible, I am telling you, this is the way to go.

The training changes how the dog feels first. The desired behavior follows. I actually started toying with some of the techniques and saw some dramatic reduction in "window" barking without using obedience commands or correcting the dog. This is just the tip of the iceberg.

Our mission is to improve the lives of dogs and their families to help them experience a joyful relationship. We help dogs become optimists. An optimistic dog is happy to see people, happy to see other dogs, and is, well…happy! We have a long history of working with families who have invested endless hours in learning about dog training – whether on TV, online, or in person.

Most dogs we start working with are pessimists. What is a pessimistic dog? Any dog that has fear, anxiety, discomfort, or aggression is a pessimist. Those dogs always expect bad outcomes in life. Many of the families with dogs who struggle to feel good in life are faced with difficult choices – living a stressful life with their dog, considering medicating their dog, surrendering their dog, or euthanasia.


It has been a great joy to us to help those families create a new life with their dog. Using primarily reward and relaxation strategies we are able to guide families in the process of changing the emotional state of their dog – how the dog feels about people, other animals and things in its environment (not just on its external behavior).
