Our club was very gentle and positive with Jax when he was a puppy... no discipline or correction, just showing him how much fun the sport is... now that he's a little older and more defiant, we're a bit more rough with him but only as a last resort.
They told me this is how he has to be trained to avoid an out of control dog. If you give a command and the dog sees it's optional, he will just get more and more out of control and then it's "really ugly" to reverse.
None of it is arbitrary dog abuse, it's more to assert that you're in control.
