BUILD THE BOND.
DO NO HARM.℠
The Central Florida Force-Free Veterinary Behavior & Trainers Network's mission is to first and foremost DO NO HARM to the animals we have been entrusted with educating. To teach, guide, and coach their caregivers so they can take ownership of their animals' education, and to do so through interactions based on rewards, respect for their animals' needs, mutual trust, and love.
WITH PET PARENTS
You love your pet and want to care for them as best you can. We partner with you for their behavioral needs, from manners, to tricks, to sports, to behavior modification. With the evidence-based and only approach supported by the Veterinary Behavior Community.
You are the first, and last, line of defense when it comes to the well-being of your patients. Providing the best care for them defines what you do. We're here to help you ensure that when it comes to your patients' behavioral needs, no harm is ever done.
Who are we?
The Central Florida Force-Free Trainers & Veterinary Behavior Network was created to help animal caregivers and pet owners choose educated and skilled training professionals. As such, we promise our human, canine, and feline clients that we won't cause pain, or mental, or emotional damage to a pet - all in the name of training or behavior modification.
What can we offer you?
We offer positive training solutions for everything from puppy training to behavior modification to tricks and tracking to Canine Good Citizen's certification!
Why do you want to know about us?
We create a positive learning environment when teaching animals, with no pain or fearful tactics involved. In today's enlightened and scientifically tested approach to animal behavior and training, well-respected groups have publicly defined the harm that force and alpha-based training can do. Using force, fear, pain, or intimidation has been found to increase aggression, and certainly erodes any relationship that exists.
