Backed by science.
Our behavior team uses training techniques that align with LIMA (least intrusive, minimally aversive) standards. These are not only proven to be the most humane, but they are also the most effective. When we take an evidence-based approach to our work, we are able to track our results and to have a clear way to measure our impact. That ripples out to everything that we do.

We also have a list of trainers in the Houston area that we really like. You could check them out as well.

You can use this form to request a behavior consult from our team of CPDT-KA/CPDT-KSA trainers. We’ll check out what you’re dealing with and get back to you as soon as we can. Services like these would cost $200 at a for-profit venture, and we’re proud to have a team willing to dedicate their time to provide these to the community for free.
All of our trainers follow a “LIMA” (Least Intrusive, Minimally Aversive) approach for training. That means we do not endorse the use of shock in training.
