Why HKRT Training?

In addition to finding homes for our rescue dogs, we offer training services to the public in an effort to keep dogs in their forever homes and out of shelters. Through Reward-Based Training and following LIMA (least intrusive, minimally aversive) principles, we build effective communication between our beloved dogs and their guardians. Along with teaching new commands, we utilize realistic management techniques to help with any behavioral issues that come with integrating a pet into your household. It's through these methods we are able to build a positive and long-lasting relationship between dogs and their humans!
