OHAR believes in Science Based - Positive Reinforcement Training

Over the past two decades, formal studies have been conducted in Behavioral Science, as it relates to animals. Researchers have found that, much like humans, animals have the ability to be trained and to learn and will tend to respond better when the environment is positive and encouraging. Training an animal is not unlike teaching a young child; the fundamental objective is the same: to get the subject to choose the appropriate behavior rather than feeling coerced into it through fear and intimidation. Fear and intimidation may bring about the desired response, while positive reinforcement will bring about the desired behavior.
