Cathy Maldonado, is a balanced canine trainer; which means we use rewards to increase desired behaviors and discipline to decrease unwanted behaviors. When given clear rewards for wanted behaviors and clear corrections for the unwanted behaviors along with, properly reinforcing wanted behaviors; it will give them a purpose of direction, and a better relationship with you and your dog(s).
We do not use the word or command “stay” in our training, our training implies an automatic “stay”. Why not have one word or command equal to 2 or 3? It makes life easier for our clients and as well as your dog (s). In order to do so we use the 3 D’s; Distance, Duration and Distractions.
All our methods of training were learned from attending Starmark Academy in Hutto, Tx where Cathy studied and was Certified as a Canine Trainer and Behavioral Specialist.
