Jenny Lea Wyffels, CPDT-KA
Cooperative Canine Concepts is committed to bringing you the most up to date and innovative training methods. Using the application of applied behavior analysis, Jenny helps build thoughtful and custom training plans with well defined goals to fit you and your dogs specific needs. As a proud advocate for positive reinforcement training methods, adhering to LIMA (Least Intrusive, minimally aversive) Jenny ensures that training is enjoyable for both you and your pet. Jenny understands it can become stressful to see your pet as their behavior problems, especially when those behaviors can prove dangerous and difficult to manage. Your dog is not to be labeled by a single moment or behavior they’re exhibiting . Behavior labels such as fearful, aggressive, anxious or reactive do not define your dog but rather define what your dog is feeling or exhibiting in that very moment. As a behavior consultant Jenny’s goal is to alleviate the challenges dogs face by giving them, and you, the tools required to feel confident and secure through training coupled with careful and precise environmental management.
“Errors are not necessary for learning to occur. Errors are not a function of learning or vice versa nor are they blamed on the learner. Errors are a function of poor analysis of behavior, a poorly designed shaping program, moving too fast from step to step in the program, and the lack of the prerequisite behavior necessary for success in the program .”
– (B.F. Skinner, The Technology of Teaching, 1968)
