Our Training Methodology

Pack Dynamic Training is our preferred All-Natural Behavior Training Methodology

All-Natural, Force-Free & Fun

Canine Behavioral Services Inc. has been in existence since 1996.  We are currently comprised of a team of humans and dogs who are constantly evolving while improving their skills in utilizing our own exclusive, force-free, all-natural Pack Dynamic Training process.  

The goal of Behavior Training, as opposed to Obedience Training, is to facilitate the dog’s ability to learn how to choose the correct, proper behavior, without having to be “told what to do” all the time!

With more than 40+ years of combined Behavior Training experience, our highly skilled behavioral trainers and training assistants utilize Classical & Operant Conditioning processes and exercises, that have been custom-tailored for the specific dog and case, while expertly harnessing the all-natural effects and benefits of Allelomimetic Behavior and Social Facilitation.

This enables us to help dogs and their owners in a way that isn’t found anywhere else.

In all our combined years of professional experience, our team has realized one very important revelation.  Nobody, I mean NOBODY, can help a dog their own behavior like a group of well-balanced dogs!

I would not go so far as to say that this all-natural process makes us “better” than other trainers or training methods…that’s not our judgment to make. 

Nor did we somehow “invent” this process.  Nature “invented” it!

We have just learned how to harness it to help other dogs in need of some assistance, education and guidance. 

Incorporating Play and Social Interactions into all aspects of Training

We offer a proven successful, all-natural approach to dog Behavior Training, that harnesses the teaching power of a pack of experienced confident dogs to “train” other imbalanced dogs how to feel better about themselves and how to exhibit more socially-acceptable positive behaviors.

It’s taken many years of hard work to get here but we are uniquely qualified to help dogs in ways that others can’t, treating behaviors and issues successfully, where others have failed.

We do this largely through play and social interaction without the need to use force or verbal commands. 

No shock collars.  No pinch collars.  No anger.  No intimidation.

Play and social interaction facilitates a greater desire and capacity for learning.


It’s amazing how much dogs can learn when they feel safe and happy!

Dogs come away from our Board & Train Programs believing it was their idea to change their own behavior and with some on-going commitment to change from the owner, this level of behavioral change can last forever! 

The dogs who experience our Pack Dynamic Training process find it to be incredibly enriching and rewarding….just check out our Testimonials to see what other owners have said about their experiences with us here at CBS.

We are not aware of any other Trainer in Rhode Island that offers this level of comprehensive all-natural, Behavior Training using a Pack of well-balanced dogs.

It’s likely that there are no other trainers in New England (and maybe beyond) harnessing the incredibly all-natural, organic incredibly powerful Power of the Pack

It’s what we call – Dogs Training Dogs!

What EXACTLY is Allelomimetic Behavior & Social Facilitation?

Allelomimetic Behavior

Allelomimetic Behavior is defined as a range of activities in which the performance of a behavior increases the possibility of that behavior being performed by other animals nearby. In layman's terms - this is more colorfully referred to as "monkey see, monkey do"...or more poignantly, "doggie see, doggie do!".

Social Facilitation

Social Facilitation is defined as when the performance of a behavior by an animal increases the probability of other animals also engaging in that behavior or increasing the intensity, frequency and reliability, of the behavior or behavioral patterns.

Here’s what we know…

By taking a scientifically sound approach to dog training while prioritizing your dog’s needs and motivating factors, we can naturally lead and guide your dog into proper acceptable behaviors without the need for the harsh corrections or intimidation (think shock collars & pinch collars) used by some trainers to achieve quick results.  

When using those “fore-methods”, there is such a high risk of serious side-effects as well as the inevitable degrading of the relationship between the dog and owner, not to mention those “quick” results almost never last.

We prefer to take a much more pro-nature stance when training dogs…no force or fear of pain. 

Whether you are interested in simply teaching your dog to walk well on a Loose-Leash, or have a dog with severe behavioral issues, we here at Canine Behavioral Services Inc. have the proven professional ability and experience to help your dog vastly improve his or her behavior and set the tone for a future of peace, harmony and behavioral balance! 

We know that finding the right trainer for you can be a difficult decision and we truly appreciate and thank you for your time and consideration.

Please do not hesitate to contact us should you have any questions or concerns.  We’re here for you 100% of the way!
