Dog Obedience Classes

When it comes to dog obedience training, there are many different types of methods available, and what happens with dog trainers is that they become like democrats and republicans. They become very hardcore set in their ways on how training should be done.

Basically what it boils down to is, you have trainers that use negative reinforcements that is shock collars, pinch collar and choke collars. Then you have the positive reinforcement trainers who use treats and in the middle you have the dog owner. They do not know who to listen to because both types of trainers say that their way is best.

What I will attempt to do with this article is to explain the advantages and disadvantages of both types of training, so that by the time you finish reading you will hopefully understand the best way to train your dog. The positive trainers say that using the items that the negative guys use is cruel, mean, harsh and dogs should not be trained that way because it inflicts pain on the dog.

The other guys hit back saying that, positive training does not train the dog for real world situations. They say without using some negative, the dog is not going to have consistent, reliable behaviour and obedience.

You will be glad to know that all different types of dog obedience training work, what you have to understand as a dog owner is that when you use shock collars there will be negative side effects. You can have cross associations, the dog can develop tolerance and you can suppress behaviour. When you use treats, there is usually no side effects to worry about but sometimes your timing can be off in order to get the consistent behaviour that you need.
