Training Philosophy

At Purple Haired Pet Care, we only use Positive Reinforcement training methods for all pet care services that we offer. We will NEVER condone the use of any aversive training methods or tools. We definitely advise against using any of these, as they can worsen or create more behavioral issues for your dog. Please note that if you currently use any of the following tools when working with your dog, we will ask that you provide a suitable alternative for our pet care professionals to use.

Aversive Tools NOT to Use:

  • Slide Chain Collars

  • Prong/Pinch Collars

  • Shock Collars

  • Spray Collars

  • Vibration Collars
