Force-Free Techniques

Dr. Wan, a Fear Free Certified Professional, uses humane methods based in the science of animal behavior, learning, and psychology to improve your dog’s behavior. She is knowledgeable about classical and operant conditioning and is skillful in using food, toys, activities, and other rewards, rather than force, to change behavior. Dr. Wan is an advocate of clicker training and will eagerly teach clicker techniques to interested owners. In line with the recommendations of the American Veterinary Society of Animal Behavior, Dr. Wan does not use prong, choke, and shock collars.

Training exercises and treatment plans are clearly communicated and demonstrated to owners by Dr. Wan. In non-aggression cases, kids are encouraged to participate in training activities, and the techniques used are safe, fun, and easy for adults and children to implement.
