NO!

The use of "NO" in training. Why?

Do you mean positive puishment? Even then it is not. To me the word "no" is vague and useless in training.

I say "no" to the dogs but don't use it in training. I will say "no" around the house, stops them from doing what they are doing and they walk away.

I can accept that. But all the time I hear people use it in their training and I can not see what advantage this brings.

I agree. This is what I was referring to on the other thread.

Training for obedience in the home and training for sport are two different things.

In the home it has worked well for me.

Im with Lies.. we don't use it in training however occassionally around the house its a "loose" and vague term that basically just means to stop what you are doing and go do something else or thats not what I want (like if I tell her to grab a certain toy and she grabs something else)

How do I use "no"?

No-bite to the puppy shark
No, not now, when they are pestering me to go out.
No more, or All Gone, when I am done handing out treats.
No bark, I suppose I have tried that, but usually try Quiet instead.

I usually use EH! when I want them to stop or when something is not what I want.

It is easier to say, and it is effective.

I am not afraid of the no-word. I think it is easier to train a dog what to do and to praise them for doing it, than to wait for a dog to do the wrong thing and then use no to teach them that is not what you want.

yeah, I don't use it either in training I was just wondering if that is what you ment.

Do you use positive punishment? If so, what do you use?

I am really new at puppy training. If I want her to stop doing something what should I say or do? NO seems to make her quit chewing on the cat or biting my hand until I can stuff a toy in her mouth.
