FAQ: What is Training without Conflict?

Training without Conflict (TWC) is Ivan Balabanov’s School for Dog Trainer’s certification. Ralf graduated as part of the first group of students. Here are some critical distinguishing factors:

  • Training without Conflict teaches WHY and HOW things work the way they do. TWC provides a deep dive into fully understanding how to train dogs in the fastest, most effective, and most fun way possible. Fun for both the dog, the dog owner, and the trainer.
  • The program helps trainers understand how to effectively work with each dog’s genetic predispositions and harness them during the training process instead of battling them. This creates harmony during training, which is what ‘training without conflict’ means.
  • Training without Conflict equips trainers to train high-level obedience, successfully work with severe behavioral cases, and stand out from the crowd through evident ability and skill. The way you see dogs will change. The way you talk about dogs will change. The way you work with dogs will change. This fundamentally different way of interacting with dogs leads to superior results.
  • TWC allows trainers to produce lasting results that dog owners and dogs enjoy equally. Trainers will be able to work with dogs where many others have failed. Clients will be better served because TWC trainers can do what other trainers often can not.
  • Training without Conflict trainers elevate the conversations they participate in online and offline by fully understanding and applying learning science to dog training correctly. More profound knowledge can drive conversations by reason instead of emotion.

For many of our clients, we train their dogs from puppyhood, getting them off to a great start. However, we also have extensive experience training rescue dogs from all imaginable backgrounds and circumstances. Our Board-and-Train program is our most popular.

We can help you, regardless of your dog's challenges or training goals. Being a professional dog trainer means having experience, knowledge, and skill.

Building Confidence is our second most popular training program.

Last but not least, we are experts in dealing with all types of aggression in dogs and are often the trainers of last resort after many other programs have failed.
