Here at Leash Basics we offer personalized training and management solutions to meet your needs. We use positive reinforcement methods. Positive Reinforcement is a friendly, non punitive method of teaching your dog using treats, praise or toys. Positive Reinforcement is backed by scientific research as being more effective and longer lasting than the "Traditional Method" of training. We offer programs to fit any and all matter age, size or breed.
