Dog Training Technique

When I talk to clients and friends, I explain that I follow the Positive Reinforcement, force free dog training technique. It’s pretty easy to say right? However, what does Positive Reinforcement dog training technique mean? I figured I would write about the main types of dog training methodologies to explain it better and what it means since different dog trainers follow different methods. Positive Reinforcement aligns with who I am as a human being and what I believe. I hope that you as dog parent find this helpful when you are looking for a dog trainer to help you on your dog training journey.

I decided to put the information in a chart to help better explain the training method.
Positive = add something (either pain or reward depending the training method)
Negative = take something away (either discomfort or reward depending on the behavior)
Reinforcement = to increase behavior
Punishment = to decrease behavior
I hope that you find this information helpful and if you would like more information on this please feel free to reach out to me for questions and how I can guide you to find the trainer that best aligns with what you and your family are looking for. – Allison
