I saw two dogs that were boarded and trained. I saw them with their owners, not the trainers. Nothing impressive
I'm sure a good trainer can train my dog and have him be perfect. But I'm also sure that once he's back with me - he will go back to his old ways.
If i can't train him then I won't be able to learn to upkeep his training either. If I had to send him away then that probably means I don't have the time, the ability, the interest or the patience to train him myself. I don't see how that would change once he's back
What are your thoughts?
Also, is it possible that a b&t facility uses mostly or any positive methods? I'd think that they're short on time so they'd need to use more force or even all force.
Sure board and trains work.. And of all the ones I know.. They also give the people lessons (one on one/a few lessons a year or for the lifetime of the dog) in working with the dog when it comes home. So that way the owners can keep up with the dogs training and they know exactly what was taught and how.
I can only speak for the people/facilities I know.. And they use a mix of positive and negative training methods..
Sometimes people need a starting point with their dogs.. That way it can make it easier for them to continue on with the training.
