Changing behaviors positively
Welcome to Gentle Ways Dog Training!
For over 12 years we have served the Puget Sound region providing Private Training and Behavior modifications as well as Dog Classes.
When working with a problem behavior, we look for the cause first. Is the dog scared? Is the dog anxious or stressed? What has reinforced this behavior?
Then we change the behavior to a more wanted one, taking into consideration the dog's biological needs and it's emotional state.

ABOUT OUR TRAINING STYLE:
We recognize that each dog have individual needs, so our in-home training is tailored for you, your dog and your life style.
Our foundation to success is understanding the underlying cause for a behavior and work out a plan to modify it. To reach success, diet and exercise, management, communication, trust building, reward-based lifestyle and understanding dog behavior, and pain free training methods are some of the essential elements we work with in order to arrive at the best results.
Fear and pain free science based training methods only. We work closely with Veterinary Behaviorists on advanced cases when stress, anxiety and aggressive behaviors are present, including bite history.
Serving King, Pierce and Part of Snohomish counties. Travel Fees might apply.
