So I enrolled my pup in puppy class at one of good schools in Central Valley CA. Before I finished puppy class, I talked to the CGC trainer. She asked me what I plan for my little girl after this. I said I want to try Schutzhund and protection. The trainer then told me it's not a good idea because my little girl is really sweet. I might turn her into aggressive dog. She said I should train my pup with only positive reinforcement.
And if I really want to try Schutzhund . The only trainer she knows is Steve White who uses a clicker to train Schutzhund, but he's down in LA. She said she doesn't know any trainer in Central Valley who use positive reinforcement method.
Now my question isn't about who's the trainer I should go to, but is what she said right? Should I stick with positive reinforcement all the way and give up the idea of Schutzhund sport because there're some negative reinforcement involve?
