What training methods did you use?

I looked back through the old posts and I didnt see a topic on this so I was wondering. What training methods did you use and how successful was it?

We use lots of praise, treats and a modified prong collar.

Re: What training methods did you use?

Tools and systems... Everything that works as long as it keeps the dog spirit.

The method I use is in very, very rough terms:

TEACHING PHASE:
Mostly positive and reward based training.
- Mechanical Learning: Instrumental conditioning. Dog wants to do the exercise because there is a reward. Not only learns the exercise but than to learning is a fun experience.
- Comprehensive Learning: Dog knows the exercise, but now has to understand it, by example, he has to move away of the reward to get it. Dog is able to do the same exercise under different variables. Distractions are added.

HIERARCHY PHASE:
Dog understand the exercise and most of the time he wants to execute it. Now he learns than to execute the exercise is not an option and it doesn't depend on the presence of the reward. Corrections are used. Dog works under heavy distractions.

ADJUSTING PHASE:
Minor mistakes are corrected. Dog has to execute the exercise with speed and precision.

Prong collar, but mostly just motivational... praise, treats and toys/play for rewards. Lack of reward is generally the only correction they get.

Re: What training methods did you use?

Primarily positive motivation techniques - mark the behavior and reward. Minimal corrections - I want a dog that works for me because I've taught a LOVE of work, not a FEAR. Rarely use any corrective collar, although I have and will use a prong if necessary, and I have and will use a shock collar (but only for really urgent needs, like teaching a dog not to chase moose).

Positive 1ST! More reward, less correction makes a GREAT trainer.

NILIF, alot of rewards and positive training. i don't like all the negative training, like if he dosen't obey you yell at him, it dosen't seem right. you need to have alot of patience, so that's what I do. just alot of praise and reward, i try really hard to make it fun!
