Canine Nation

Canine Nation inspires dog owners to examine the way we relate to
our dogs. We encourage teaching dogs using modern training methods
based on behavioural science and rewards, not force and punishment.

Canine Nation was created by dog trainer Eric Brad. He has published
a regular blog at the Life As A Human online magazine since 2010.
In 2011, he extended Canine Nation to include a regular podcast
reaching listeners around the world with thousands of downloads.

In 2002, Eric made a bold change in his dog training philosophy
by turning away from Traditional, force-based training techniques
to focus on modern animal training methods based on behavioural
science and reward-based training. The results have been nothing
short of exhilarating for Eric and his dogs. Canine Nation is his outlet
for sharing ideas and opinions on dogs and dog training.

Now living in Victoria, British Columbia Canada, Eric continues his work
with dogs and their owners providing group and private instruction in
positive dog training methods and dog agility.
