You seem to be forgetting the point of training your dog in the first place! I train my dog (somehow!) to obey my command (voice and/or signal) precisely so I do not have to use physical force to make him/her obey. I understand that as a young puppy for example I can chase him and get him if he refuses to come when called. However very clearly once the dog is a few months old there is no way in the world that I can chase my GSD and physically catch him if he won't come. BUT, if i train him to obey, then he will continue to obey me even if physically I cannot MAKE him come.Simple question for anyone/everyone: Would you rather your dog complies because you are capable of physically forcing him to submit, and your dog knows this (a la Cesar), or willingly complies due to a relationship of trust and respect developed by fair and consistent leadership coupled with motivational training (see videos by Ivan Balabanov [Jason just posted an excellent one in the thread about ball drive], and Michael Ellis)? Of course, this assumes that you ARE strong enough to physically force your dog to submit, which many people are not. I submit that MOST people do have that choice, or at least they did at one time.
I really don't care WHY my dog obeys me - (i.e. what is going on in his brain), just that he does when I tell him to.
I do not want my dog deciding himself if he is going to obey or not depending on his motivation at that moment.
Think about it - are you really serious that it is the relationship of "trust and respect developed by fair and consistent leadership coupled with motivational training" that is going to convince the dog to obey a "come", "sit", "down", etc. command that you give?
