A little About Us
Gentle Touch Pet Training has been serving the Central Coast for more than 20 years. Gentle Touch was founded in 1999 by Teah Anders, author of Click ‘n Connect: Training your Dog – A Lifelong Journey.
All basic dog training is based on the tenets of Clicker Training, a gentle approach using a marker signal and positive reinforcement to shape your dog’s behaviors (the same way marine mammals are trained). Additionally, all of our agility and nose work classes are taught through positive reinforcement.
