As in every other area, staying up to date with the latest reasearch and methods is essential to offer a good quality of service.  Animal behavior and training is at the center of numerous research, as is learning theory.  I want to draw my tools from the latest acknowledged practices and from those that have been proven most effective to accompany you in the daily training as well as when you face difficulties. As such, attending training seminars is a given.
