My name is Jude McDermott and I am a firm believer in the use of gentle, motivational training methods.  I do not use nor do I advocate the use of any type of aversive methods or techniques in dog training.  I am proud a proud member of the Pet Professional Guild.  No member of the PPG uses any type of training methods that includes the use of choke chains, electric collars, rattle cans, spray bottles, pushing, pulling, hitting or yelling etc. at dogs. All members use kind, fair and effective training methods.
