Humane training methods are used in all our training. Choke chains (also referred to as check chains) are not used or suggested. Pinch collars and shock collars are not mentioned. Under no circumstances will pain or fear inducing methods be used. Tersia includes clicker training and TTouch® in all courses. If the clicker is not what you would prefer, you will be assisted differently. The main training method remains positive reinforcement.
One of Tersia's interests in the canine field is situations where the owner views the dog's behaviour as challenging. Such challenges include jumping up, separation discomfort, chewing, digging, and some cases of aggression. When the dog shows behaviour that the owner would like to change or that might be in the dog's interest to alter, such sessions will also be arranged at your house. Once again no pain or fear inducing methods will be used or advised. I do not work in terms of dominance theory, as this gives rise to many undesirable training methods. This does not mean there shouldn't be structure or boundaries in a multi - species household. Positive does not mean permissive.
