Get to Know Our Philosophy
Firm, fair and fun
Ambassador Bullies Dog Training, Inc. is a South Brevard based, in-home dog training company that helps dog owners understand how to manage their dogs using our proven methods.
We do NOT believe in "one size fits all" training.
Each individual dog and owner are at different levels of ability. For this reason, we start each client with a 90-minute, hands-on consultation to establish what YOU would like to gain through training. We then create a training program based specifically on YOUR needs and requests. We have clients ranging from first time dog owners doing puppy potty training, to experienced dog owners that are having issues they can no longer manage.
ABDT, Inc., specializes in bully breeds, however, we do not discriminate. We work with ALL breeds and sizes.
**Our methods are proven and based on actual and consistent results. ABDT, Inc. DOES NOT USE or CONDONE "Alpha/Dominance" techniques, or using "heavy hands" during dog training. These methods are harmful and out-dated, and will ultimately break the trust bond between the dog and handler**
ABDT, Inc. pride ourselves in building balanced, happy, obedient dogs using a balance of exercise, consistency, boundaries, and PRAISE!
Exercise, Boundaries, Consistency and Praise.
Ambassador Bullies believes that there are a few key elements that must be
established to have a balanced dog.
1) Exercise: Dogs by nature tend to be very energetic. When a dog, especially a "bully breed", is not given the opportunity to use his/her physical energy in a constructive way, you may begin to see bad behaviors as a result of physical frustration.
2) Enrichment/Exposure: Enrichment is providing the dog with toys, games and scenarios that allow the dog to use 1 or more of their 5 senses (smell, touch, taste, sight or sound). Exposure to different types of environments during enrichment.
3) Boundaries: We create balance by giving your dog VERY clear and consistent boundaries. A fully balanced dog respects rules and boundaries, both inside and out of the house.
4) Consistency: When we set a boundary, we enforce it. This is important because your dog needs to be absolutely clear on what you expect, therefore, making it easier for your dog to behave appropriately.
5) Praise: With firm boundaries MUST come lots of praise and reward! We will identify what motivates YOUR dog and capitalize on that motivation during training.
