Dog training has changed a lot over the years.
Friends, neighbors, and even some trainers may still recommend e-collars or promote ‘dominance’ theory. These methods are misguided and can actually cause behavior issues.
Positive training is a more effective method, as many scientific studies show. It builds trust, cannot cause pain, aggression, or fear in dogs, and makes training fun.
