With Millan ‘psychology’ method, Balanced Paws fills dogs’ needs
Lincoln, a canine behaviorist, has been training dogs for four years. He started the business in his home, but with the business’ growth he said they decided to open up the center to accommodate more dogs.
“It’s not a day care, it’s a boot camp,” he said, adding, “It’s not just training, it’s focusing on the dog’s needs. Every dog that comes here, whether it comes from a puppy stage or adult dog, has some type of behavior issues.
“The reason why we do it is because their needs aren’t being met the way they should be met.”
Lincoln is a student of Millan and volunteers with Millan’s team, teaching students from around the world.
“We bring a different aspect into what we do here, and what we teach owners is the way the dog sees the world,” he said. “As Cesar would say, ‘It’s all about exercise, discipline, then affection last.’
“The way I like to say it is ‘mind, body and soul.’
