I had a neighbor suggest this book: Purely Positive Training by Sheila Booth. He swore by the book as the only thing he referred to when training his last 3 GSD's. Does anyone else have any opinions on it?
I do believe that Steve puts a prong collar on his puppies at a very early age.I saw that book was recommended on here, I believe by Steve? cant remember, so I ordered it and her other book Schutzhund Obedience Training in Drive. It is supposed to be delivered Friday, I cant wait to read them!
I have them too, although I haven't gotten around to reading them yet. There's a picture of Halo in one of them, I think it's #3. She's running for her tug at a flyball tournament looking all Jaws, lol. Unfortunately, she's mistakenly referred to as "he" instead of "she".I also have Dog Sports Skills books 1-3 by Denise Fenzi, I still need to order book 4. Not exactly a training book but lots of good info in them.
I agree. I read it some time ago but remember that it was very good.That is actually a good book and worth reading.
Have you read the book?I wonder if his GSDs were the intense working lines? Purely Positive is not a good description as there is always something negative for a dog, no matter how you train. I guess it means training without physical corrections. Probably meaning 'Operant Conditioning'.
