Just after some views and opinions. Im not judging but just like your experiences, preferences and why if you dont mind.
Many years ago I had a German Shep (Talking about 20 yrs) Training was with a slip collar, verbal reprimands with a stern harsh voice and lots of praise. This seemed to work well from memory. The other night I went to the local dog obedience club. Everybody walking around with little bum bags on giving their dogs little treats for everything they done, using the treat to make the dog lie etc etc. It seemed to me the only reward was food. Now I know fads come and go and different styles come and go too like clicker training. So I am interested to know what you do with your dog (tacking, obedience etc) and your preferred method of training
Thanks for you time and input.
