The UK Dog Whisperer communicates with dogs and animals in a calm and gentle way, known as ‘Dog Whispering’, whilst incorporating psychological techniques. Bruce has a natural love for dogs – they are his passion, his hobby and his life. He is able to communicate with dogs on another level enabling him to instantly bond and build a rapport with families and their beloved companions, providing solutions to problem behaviours and successfully changing these undesirable behaviours to create a more balanced and peaceful family environment.
What are the psychological training techniques?
Bruce is a qualified Behaviourist. The Behaviourist model of learning is based upon the findings from Ivan Pavlov, 1904 (known as Pavlovian, or Classical Conditioning), and B.F. Skinner, 1953 (Operant Conditioning). Bruce is fully qualified to practice these learning procedures and positively incorporates these, as well as his calm and gentle ‘dog whispering’ techniques, into every dog training program. These
models of learning incorporate both reward and punishment, but Bruce bases his training techniques using purely ‘reward ‘ based therapy, as Bruce has found this produces the best end results for the dog in a domestic environment. Bruce advises that no one should ever use the punishment methods without consulting a qualified professional like Bruce first.
Bruce sometimes extends the psychological training techniques by using ‘clicker training’. This marks the desired behavior which is then followed almost instantly by reward. Please don’t hesitate to ask if you wish to learn more as timing is imperative with clicker training for the best results.
