What is Positive Reinforcement?
Positive reinforcement means reinforcing your dog for doing the right behavior. When teaching a dog skills, we want to reinforce their behavior. When a behavior is reinforced, it is likely to be repeated. Reinforcement can be in the form of treats, toys, praise etc. Through clear reinforcement, practice and consistency, the goal is to get your dog to respond to cues with little to no food.
What is LIMA?
LIMA is an acronym that refers to "Least Intrusive, Minimally Aversive." Trainers and behavior consultants who follow the principles of LIMA adhere to least intrusive, minimally aversive strategies to achieve the best outcome for success when training or addressing behavior concerns.

Recent Client Reviews
“Anthony is the best! My 2.5 year-old rescued Pitbull, Ace, was displaying resource guarding and aggression. After working with Anthony for a couple of months both over zoom and in-person, Ace has improved so much.”
“My husband and I worked with Katie Cameron of De Marinis Dog Training for our puppy and had a wonderful experience. Katie was patient and understanding as this was our first time having a puppy and she really took the time to work with us at our own pace. Katie taught us so many great games and techniques that helped us get our puppy on track to be a great family dog.”
