The International Positive Dog Training Association was founded by Norma Jeanne Laurette of Canine Communications Studies in Kitchener ON and Sherry Herla. The International Positive Dog Training Association is for dog-related professionals, dog owners and enthusiasts who are willing to take a stand for the use of only humane techniques in dog training and behavior modification. The purpose of the IPDTA is to dissect every tool and technique to agree on proper application and to establish the accepted standards for what is humane and what is abusive.

To recognize and encourage trainers who choose to use positive methods rather than force and fear to train dogs, the International Positive Dog Training Association sponsors an annual awards program for which voting is done by peers. Jennifer Shryock owner of Family Paws was awarded Writer of the Year for her program Dogs & Storks as well as for her contributions to the educational programs by Doggone Safe.

Jennifer Shryock is the United States Coordinator of Doggone Safe, a non-profit organization that promotes positive training and specifically clicker training as a safe way to train dogs, especially for children, to facilitate the development of a respectful and loving bond between the dog and family members. This all positive method uses the science of operant conditioning to teach dogs without force, punishment or correction. “Clicker training is hands down the best way to train a dog” said Teresa Lewin, animal behavior specialist and Vice President, Education and Development for Doggone Safe. “If everyone would train their dogs with clicker training from the day they bring them home as young puppies, we would see a lot fewer behavior problems and aggression as they grow into adults.”

Doggone Safe President Joan Orr said “we are very pleased to see so many of our members honoured this way by their peers and we are delighted that highly qualified and dedicated professionals such as Jennifer Shryock choose to join and promote Doggone Safe”. “We are grateful to Norma Jeanne Laurette of Canine Communications Studies for sharing her knowledge and teaching others how to apply the concepts of positive dog training and start a successful career in this rewarding field”.
