Re: confrontational vs non-confrontational training
There's a difference between being aggressive to an aggressive dog and being a strong leader. I don't disagree with the article, in fact, I would tend to agree with them in general, but I think they leave a lot out - although they point out aggressive training can be bad, they don't get into what is good beyond a generalized sentence or two. I think that reward based training has it's place, as does correction based training, and like most things in life, that balance needs to be sought for each human and canine couple.
