The most powerful thing we can each do as individuals is understand, care for and train our dogs in a way that builds a relationship based on trust and inspires others to adopt the same force-free, positive philosophy.
"We have created the positively pledge as a way for each of us to show our commitment to this philosophy and more importantly, to offer actionable steps to integrate these ideas into our own lives with dogs. We hope that you can apply the pledge with your own dogs and that you share it with your friends & family so they too can become an active part of the solution; the answer to antiquated ideas and harmful methods... the future of dog training!"
