Dog Teaching Options
There are many dog training options to choose from. Some use a master/servant approach based in intimidation and physical corrections, others use food rewards and positive reinforcement techniques and the list goes on and on. Dogs learn differently than we do. For the most part, people rely very heavily on verbal language; in fact a great part of our learning is through verbal communication. It’s natural for us to want to teach our pets in the same manner in which we learn. We must understand that verbal language is a very small percentage of a dog’s communication. The majority is body language, eye contact and trial and error. Most of our dogs will figure out what we’re trying to teach them, usually in spite of our efforts; however, effective dog training necessitates our learning how to communicate with them in a language they understand in order to help them learn. Using the natural forms of communication that all pack animals use with each other, dog training can be quick, easy and most importantly painless.
