About David Codr

We are a team of dog behaviorists and trainers who use positive reinforcement and dog psychology to help dogs learn how you want them to act and behave.

We are completely force free, never use punishment based tools (such as pinch collars, shock collars, choke chains, etc) or dominance based methods (alpha rolls, harsh leash corrections, etc).
