Warrior trainers learn to patiently and affectionately build relationships with the dogs. Trainers are responsible for teaching dogs that the world is a safe place, and through this process, are able to convince themselves of the same. By praising the dogs and providing positive reinforcement when they experience an unexpected event, like a loud noise, warrior trainers learn to focus on the mission to help another veteran. Participants have reported that learning these positive reinforcement techniques leads to positive interactions with members of the community and significantly improves their family dynamics as well.
