Training is the most important thing you can do for you dog, yourself and your relationship. This is the one thing you definitely want to get right. Positive reinforcement is the only way one should train. It is scientifically proven to work. It also increases your bond with your dog. It makes your dog more secure and able to trust you. It also brings out the absolute best in your dog and allows him/her to feel confident enough to try new things. Click here to read Chapala Bay's Training Booklet.
TV training is not good. It looks like it works due to the seemingly reasonable explanation. The trouble is that it is not based in science. Also, they are not attaining success, the dogs just shut down, are fearful and hence, unpredictable. It is a sad life for a dog who can’t trust his person. That dog can’t attain it’s potential. Please, do not use these methods on any dogs.
