I am Christine Scott and I am the proud owner of Great Scott Dog Training Inc. I am a Certified Dog Trainer who graduated from Animal Behavior College with Honors. I am also an Animal Behavior College Mentor. I am a Certified Professional Dog Trainer through the Certification Council of Professional Dog Trainers®. I am a member of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers and a C.L.A.S.S. (Canine Life and Social Skills) instructor and evaluator, as well as a member of the Pet Professional Guild.
I currently offer group classes in Suntree, Melbourne and West Melbourne (see Services and Locations). I also offer private instruction with a large variety of behavioral issues in the privacy of your own home.
My methods are positive reinforcement based- meaning that training and behavior modification is based on a reward based system, rather than a punishment based system. (See "What Positive Reinforcement Is And Isn't" under Blogs).
Christine Scott's training methods are primarily based on:
Positive Reinforcement Training, believing that most training goals can be accomplished by using either positive reinforcement (food, toys, playtime, etc.) or negative punishment (time outs, loss of toys, etc.)
Behavior Modification based on a reward based system, rather than punishment. Problem behaviors are best dealt with by teaching an alternative behavior (re-directing).
Leadership exercises as well as owner education in the natural language and universal needs of all dogs.
