Victoria Stilwell is best known for her popular Animal Planet TV show, It's Me or the Dog. Through years of of appearances and tours, she has been able to develop a platform to educate the public about the dangers of traditional training methods and the merits and rewarding nature of reward-based training. Now she has been able to further the cause by adding a network of positive-reinforcement trainers, known as Victoria Stilwell Positively Dog Training.
I am proud to have been included among these. All trainers must pass a rigorous qualification process which are overseen by Victoria herself, and are continuously monitored to ensure that all members live up to the highest standards of professionalism, ethics and ability.
Unfortunately, it is still very common practice among many professional dog trainers to employ outdated, inhumane and ultimately dangerous training techniques. That is why I wish to assure you that, as a Positively trainer, I will always employ only the most humane, scientifically-based positive reinforcement methods while treating both dogs and owner with respect and professionalism.
