Throughout my limited dog training experience I've always tried to avoid using food. Since all their training has been done by me at home, it's been a learning experience. For every command I've taught them, I've had to scour the internet for a method that I approved of, then I went with that one. My dogs know these commands well, but it was quite time consuming.
I heard about Peter Caine from this thread: Don't Pet The Dang Dog!!
I searched around his Youtube channel and learned that he doesn't use treats either. Is there a name for the training style that he uses?
I want to be able to find resources from training that use a similar style. Rarely will I find a single trainer and use their method every step of the way.
Hi, I'm Charlie. And, you are?
