Positive Reinforcement Training Methods
People & Pups, LLC focuses on positive reinforcement training. Not only does this help your dog understand what you expect of him, but it also helps your relationship with him by strengthening your bond.
I do not use or recommend shock collars, prong collars or any other adversive methods. Use of these methods will damage the relationship you have with your dog, and will have side effects that may be worse than the behavior you were trying to work through.
Why not use traditional training by adversive methods?
Adversive methods tend to breed aggression or make problems worse in the long run. It can seriously traumatize your dog, and cause them to shut down. They may run and hide or fight back. Dogs that already have an aggressive tendency may become more aggressive with adversive training methods. This is why People & Pups focuses on positive reinforcement training methods.
Training a dog is like losing weight. If you are doing it right, it will take time to see results, but when you do, the results will be longer lasting and healthier. I can't guarantee how long it will take to train your dog, but I can guarantee he will have fun learning.
Beware of trainers that promise instant results. Their methods may be adversive.
