Answer by Bossoli ©
A positive trainer uses positive reinforcement, in the form of praise or reward as a means to encourage desired behavior from a dog.

Positive trainers are big on food and toy motivators, as well as markers and clickers. They’re not big on restraints, remote collars or pinch collars. I’m a little rusty on my knowledge of famous positive trainers, since I’m more into a balance between positive reinforcement, operant conditioning, classical conditioning and aversion training.
