UMDR Force-Free Training Classes

Force free training is teaching an animal without pain, intimidation, threats, force, or coercion. It’s done without corrections, without adverse equipment (prong, shock, choke, bark collars), and without pain.

Force free training encourages a stronger bond and relationship with your dog and helps dogs gain confidence by thinking for themselves and learning to make good choices on their own.

Our training classes provide information and education to the public to prevent dogs from living life on a chain, segregated to a pen, or being surrendered to the shelter by teaching owners how to teach their dog.

The Basics:

Our classes teach the basics that every dog needs to know to be a great family member in the home:
Focus • Sit • Down • Stay • Leave it • Coming when called • Walking on a loose leash
