ABOUT GOOD DOG 101
Good Dog 101 was created about 19 years ago when owner, Vincent Madeiros, saw an opportunity to introduce a new way of dog training using positive methods. During those years, Vincent served as President of the Bermuda Kennel Club and director of the Bermuda All Breed Club and Dog Training Club of Bermuda. He is the founder of International Dog Events Association (IDEA) which provides a venue for all dogs to compete in agility under USDAA rules in Bermuda. Vincent is a Certified Professional Dog Trainer attaining his certification in 2002 and continues his education in dog training by attending seminars and conferences. He was recertified in September 2014. Vincent is a Professional Premium Member of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers. Vincent and his wife moved to Pennsylvania in late 2008.
IT PAWSITIVELY FUN!
Dogs love to have fun and so do people. We believe that building a good relationship with your dog is the best way to be successful in your training endeavors. Good Dog 101 is proud to provide a variety of training classes to enhance your training experience with your dog.
POSITIVE TRAINING TECHNIQUES
Good Dog 101 uses positive reinforcement as the training method for teaching dogs certain behaviors have value while others don't. The behavior that is rewarded is more likely to be repeated than the one that is not rewarded. Using these techniques dogs learn to make good choices on which behaviors to repeat.
