Lynne Fedorick only uses a positive, safe, highly effective approach to training which you and your dog can catch onto very quickly and nearly effortlessly. And the result will be a dog that will amaze you with reliable excellent manners, obedience, and overall good behaviour. Oh yeah, and some really cool tricks too! What does positive training mean?
Positive dog training means your dog learns that you are a trustworthy leader and reliable provider through a reward based system that never uses punishment or corrections. You need to communicate clear guidelines for behaviour, but you never need to force your dog to perform. When we are effectively communicating what we want the dog to do, he is overjoyed that he understands you, and he performs because there is nothing he would rather do. By always setting the dog up for success, he joyfully offers more of the behaviour we want and less of the behaviour we don’t want.
Heres what positive training includes:
training by rewarding desirable behaviours
rewards of treats, toys, praise, and play
marker, clicker training
luring, capturing, and shaping
discipline through time outs, removal of attention or something else the dog likes
understanding the dog is a sentient member of a foreign species
force based techniques/force physical manipulation
compulsion/coercion based techniques (do it now or else I will correct you)
any tool designed to cause the dog pain or fear of pain
unrealistic training goals
pitting dog against human
