Punishment based training comes with an extremely high risk and as a result is unacceptable. Since the majority of dog bites are defensive bites caused by fear, maintaining trust and mutual respect with a dog is critical. Aversive tools and techniques erode the trust bond between the human and dog.
After years of successfully training animals without the use of intimidation, fear or pain, I know that punishment-based training is unnecessary. After all, how would YOU prefer to learn? Would you rather be forced to do something, or be asked and rewarded when you do it? There are as many ways to train as there are trainers, but my golden rule of thumb is simple — if you wouldn't want someone doing it to you, you don't do it to anything else, animal or human!
