For the more Open Minded trainers to

the fact that animal training in general, and dog training in particular has changed (for the better ) over the years.... the following blog (hope you can read it, may have to join though )

The Possibilities in Dog Training | Susan Garrett's Dog Training Blog

Thoughts? Ideas? Willing to consider or not?

Interesting read. I agree with most of it. She does not use a verbal correction but will not tolerate a slow sit, so she redoes without a word of praise. I find myself doing that as well. I do use verbal corrections. But then again, my dogs do like to please me. I do not expect so much out of a six month old puppy, but if it is all done in the guise of fun and games, it cannot hurt.

What I like about the techniques is that it cannot mess the dog up. It is all motivational. If treats do not motivate, then the tug toy, if you fail with the dog, it is because you cannot manage to find what motivates the dog.
