My name is Courtney Goodman and I am a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA). I received my Bachelors degree in Developmental Psychology from The College of New Jersey and I earned my Masters Degree in Applied Psychology focusing in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) from Rider University. Behavior Analysis is the scientific study of principles of learning and behavior. Applied Behavior Analysis is a systematic approach used to examine behavior and reliably related environmental variables in order to use behavioral techniques to bring about a desired change in behavior.
I use reinforcement based techniques to teach new behaviors as well as to decrease problem behaviors. This is achieved by teaching positive replacement behaviors for the problem behaviors. These changes in behavior are brought about using shaping techniques and differential reinforcement (positive reinforcement of appropriate behaviors combined with withholding of reinforcement for inappropriate behaviors).
I use fear-free, reinforcement based training and follow LIMA guidelines for the least-intrusive, minimally aversive methods of achieving behavior change. Learn more about LIMA here: https://apdt.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/position-statement-lima.pdf
Staci, Maggie's Mom
As long time dog owners, we recognized the need for training for our extremely high energy dog that we rescued. Courtney has done a wonderful job with our puppy, Maggie. Now our puppy is calmer and has learned how to appropriately greet people and walk on leash. It is obvious that Maggie enjoys her training time and loves to learn new behaviors. As a bonus our older dog has leaned new behaviors and enjoys people more since Courtney has been our trainer. Courtney is an awesome dog trainer! She is reliable and makes extra efforts to ensure the well being of all her clients. On top of all the great things Pawsome Behavior has to offer, Courtney is a wonderful person who truly has a passion for what she does!
Wren, Isla's Mom
Courtney has a been a HUGE help in guiding my partner and I with the addition of another pup. She has helped navigate us through a behavioral training program. We continue to work with Courtney with managing our dogs’ reactivity and how we can become better pup pawrents!
Traci, Provi's Mom
We learned so much doing our training with Pawsome Behavior! Courtney was so knowledgeable about so many different topics, and gave us so many ideas and suggestions. The various training methods we discussed were clear and effective. We noticed a significant improvement in our pup over the course of our training sessions! I would highly recommend training your dog with Pawsome!
