Momentum Dog Sports relies only on scientific training principles to teach behaviors specific to the sport of agility. We do not use methods that apply fear, force, or pain to your team mate. We use food treats and toy play (commonly called reinforcers) to build and maintain behaviors. We will never ask your dog to do anything he is not ready for but we know, that by using operant conditioning, your dog will be begging to do more and more every lesson!
Read more about operant conditioning (OC) here.
Don't worry if you have never heard of OC before or have no idea how to apply it. We can teach you how to properly apply it and use it to it's full advantage so your team becomes a shining star in short order.
If you have ever heard of clicker training, then you may know more about OC than you think. Clickers are a tool of OC.
While we do encourage the use of clickers in all classes it is not required. But we do require the minimum of a verbal bridge in competition classes. Don't fret, we will teach you, the human, how to use a verbal bridge!
