About Bart Bellon

Bart Bellon® is the father (or now grandfather) of modern dog training. His NePoPo® system is revolutionary. Bart gives seminars and workshops around the world.

What is NePoPo®? NePoPo® is a training system where you get behaviour always coming on cue with heart and soul. NePoPo® is a negative positive positive training system that I learned to do instinctively because NePoPo® allows the handler to take advantage of the benefits of both Positive Reinforcement training and Negative Reinforcement training (sometimes called “Avoidance” training). When people asked me what I did, I had to describe what I do in a language that others could replicate and understand. With more and more people finding success using NePoPo®, it became a complete system for training behaviours. In the past 5 years, my wife and I have instituted another evolution of NePoPo® where we go more and more operant in the first 8 months or so. The dog becomes so creative and intense and passionate, and we can also go back to the old NePoPo® if desired because the with the new NePoPo® the attitude is exactly what we want for training and the dog has learned to be innovative. Those things do not go away when we go back to the old NePoPo®. This new NePoPo® becomes more and more a lifestyle, however, where people choose to use it all the time because it is effective, humane, and engaging for dog and handler alike. The new NePoPo® makes training easy, enjoyable, harmonious, passionate and entertaining, and effective.
