Welcome to Cognitive Canine Dog Training!!
Looking to Adopt a dog?
Cognitive Canine Dog Training is located in Pocono Pines, Pennsylvania and services Monroe County and surrounding area's. We're fully insured, and certified through the APDT.
We offer Foundation Classes, K9 Sports, Behavior Specific Classes, Dog Walks, Behavior Consultations, In-Home private training, Day Training, along with C.L.A.S.S. and AKC CGC training/evaluations.
Using force free, positive reinforcement training methods, we reward your dog for performing the behaviors you want, while using management, extinction, and negative punishment to get rid of the behaviors you don't want. Our goal is to increase and enrich the bond and relationship between dogs and their owners, creating a two-way street for communication and mutual respect.
We never use harsh verbal or physical corrections, coercion, intimidation, or pain through the use of shock collars, choke collars, or prong collars. While aversive training can work at stopping a behavior for a period of time, the price is not worth. Such fallout can include, but is not limited to, destructive behaviors, a breakdown of the human/animal bond, avoidance, fear, an increase in anxiety, neurosis or even aggression.
Training your dog is not just about having basic manners, but about every aspect of their lives including his emotional health. Because of this approach we include proper greeting to new dogs, the correct way to introduce your dog to strangers, K9 Message, nutrition, grooming and adequate mental and physical exercise as a part of our training packages.
