DogLogic uses UPWARD Methodology because it is proven to be the most effective approach when working with dogs over the age of six months, and especially rescued dogs. 

UPWARD Methodology is grounded in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), as opposed to the standard Operant Conditioning. Operant Conditioning uses positive reinforcement, replacement training, distraction training and standard house training and socialization techniques, which are effective with puppies, but often fail with dogs because they are reactive in nature.

UPWARD Methodology is Pro-Active in nature. We teach your dog skills that can then be applied to teach expected behaviour, decrease aggression and anxiety, and successfully integrate your dog into your lifestyle. UPWARD Methodology is force free, fear free and, most importantly, is effective with  each individual dog because it is adaptable and flexible.
