The philosophy of dog training Esteem Training works and here is why:
1. Favorable results support a behaviour to be repeated by dog and owner.
2. Discourage from duplicating a behaviour.
As an example, we hold the lift door open and someone says, “Thank you!” (favorable), so we’re prone to get it done again. We learn from both negative and positive effects and act so.
If his type of play is practical when a pup plays his mom, she reacts absolutely. But if the boss gets too rough, his mother is quick to correct using bite or a growl. Does Pup never play with a different dog and become depressed? Certainly not. He’s happy to play – just more softly.
Favorable dog training that is only is well intentioned, yet it can not fit how dogs learn or real life. Just withholding a treat isn’t a negative outcome to the majority of dogs. Particularly not when they are happily occupied with chewing up shoes or digging through the garbage or pestering the cat. They do not care a whit.
No, dogs learn best from dog training that is balanced, where their behaviors can lead to negative results OR positive.
Effects that are negative = YOU correcting unwanted behaviors with hands or your voice, or together with the leash or collar.
