The primary focus and “Art” of Dog Training is to establish a relationship of trust in order to maintain attention and control in a highly distracted situation. Dogs understand the world with a survival mentality. After 1000’s of years of evolution, dogs still rely on their instincts, temperaments, and energy to make choices. Balanced training teaches your dog how to make better choices and decisions even when distracted. Dogs will understand what to do as opposed to what not to do. They will look to you for your direction based on trust in your relationship and will understand how to follow your leadership. Balanced training is a reward based system with canine mentality as the language of understanding. Triumphant Canine will tailor your personal program to fit the needs of your canine companion.

Since the first training session, I felt a breath of fresh air and confidence, which has progressed over the last couple of months! It has been fun watching Hudson master basic commands with ease and even learn a few tricks in the meantime. I didn’t expect it to seem so fun for my dog and now he constantly looks up to me for direction. Not only have I seen a change in him but I have also seen a change in how I interact with him…instead of correcting problem behaviors I have found myself being more proactive showing him something else to do instead.
Coach Dan McCarthy has a special gift when it comes to creating a life-long bond between a Dog and its Pet Parents. Our family wanted so much to get inside Sami’s head so we could understand what she was feeling, thinking and what she could not tell us. Sami is our 4 yr old King Charles Spaniel. Every dog has its own story to share and Sami’s is special…she lost her hearing over this past year. So, how best to keep Sami safe and communicate with her when she has no idea that she is being told to do (or not to do) something to please those who love her? Enter Coach Dan.
I just couldn’t do it and remember working with Dan in Therapy Dog. Dan came over to my house and worked with Andy where he had his problems, out back and on the bike trails. After 3 private sessions I was allowed to bring Andy to group lessons which are really fun and gave me the confidence to keep working with Andy. I am looking forward to May when I once again can start training Andy for water rescue work! Thank you Dan, you truly saved Andy’s life.
