Dog owners know that finding the perfect treat can be difficult when dog training.
That's why Dr. Dalton just decided to make her own, and Dr. Dalton's Premium Treats was born.
Dr. Susan Dalton's journey into the world of dogs began when she adopted a formerly-abused Border Collie named Cassie who was afraid of everything. After working with numerous dog trainers, with many different types of methods that proved ineffective, she decided to take things into her own hands.
She started working at a local doggie day care in Goleta, California where she began to refine her dog training skills. Dr. Dalton was ready to begin working with "hopeless" cases like Cassie.
In 2009 she opened California School for Dogs. She began to work specifically with aggressive and traumatized pets by using only positive reinforcement. That means she never raises her voice, points a finger, or uses her hands on the dog whatsoever. She believes that by giving the dog a "safe spot" and resources to help them in the situation, they will respond better than with punishment.
A major tool for positive reinforcement to be effective is treats. Any dog owner will know that the treat market is extremely saturated with unhealthy and unnatural treats. Again, she decided to take matters into her own hands.
Dr. Dalton had been making her own treats for her own training purposes, but when her clients started asking for them too she decided to bring them to market. Dr. Dalton's Premium Treats are 100% natural, made with only chicken, beef, or pork. They are cut in a size that is beneficial for training purposes and, not only do the dogs love them, but owners can feel confident that they aren't feeding their furry babies preservatives and other secret ingredients that can be found in most dog treats.
Dr. Dalton's treats are sold in pet stores in the Santa Barbara/Goleta area and online. You can even sign up for their subscription service that delivers the treats right to your door once a month. If you are in the Southern California area you should also keep an eye out for Dr. Dalton's training workshops that she offers.
Susan Dalton has worked hard to prove that not all dogs are hopeless and that not all dog treats have to be filled with preservatives and cooked grains. She is rewarded every day when she sees her clients create a bond with their "impossible" pet, and that is what she loves most.
