Supaw Dog Training
Supaw Dog Training was founded with the goal of educating all dog parents on how to train and communicate with their dogs effectively. Through training, owners can gain a better understanding of their dogs and their needs. The training approach adopted at Supaw follows the LIMA (Least Intrusive, Minimally Aversive) guidelines. LIMA does not justify the use of punishment in place of other effective interventions and strategies. Learn more about the Hierarchy of Procedures for Humane and Effective Practice.
Wilson is an Accredited Dog Trainer, certified by IAABC and AVS. In 2021, he completed the Diploma in Canine Behavior from The International School for Canine Psychology & Behavior.
His journey into the world of dog training began with positive-reinforcement techniques in October 2016 when he enrolled in a training program with his dog, Cookie, in Boise, ID, USA. This program emphasized clicker training and force-free methods, providing Wilson with firsthand experience of their effectiveness and the profound impact they had on Cookie's behavior and well-being.
This introduction to positive-reinforcement training allowed Wilson to develop a deep appreciation for its benefits. He witnessed the incredible difference it made in building a harmonious and loving relationship between him and Cookie. The positive reinforcement approach became his passion, and he made it his mission to help other dog owners experience the same transformation in their relationships with their furry companions.
With this vision, he established Supaw Dog Training, dedicated to educating dog parents on effective training and communication with their pets using positive-reinforcement methods. The training approach at Supaw strictly adheres to the LIMA (Least Intrusive, Minimally Aversive) guidelines, ensuring a compassionate and understanding connection between dogs and their owner.
