Training Methods

Below I describe general training plans that involve on and off leash training tool usage. 

Depending on dog and owner goals custom plans can be made.

Eating Puppy

Positive reinforcement 

TREATS! TREATS! Every dog loves a treat; add a clicker to mark the action, and then it becomes a game. Start a dog with the bait and lure method to understand where they stand in their training. A dog with zero to some training will follow a treat and attempt to do as asked. Once the dog understands the action paired with the word treat, praise, or toy are given.

Prong collar 

This tool balances positive and negative reinforcement as praise and treats are the reward and the correction in the consequence. Imagine a puppy being nipped by their mother is similar to a pop and release of the prong collar. Correctly sized the prong collar to fit each dog securely at the top of the neck to ensure their safety. This tool involves always using on-leash to ensure the dog understands the owner's expectations.

E-collar 

The off-leash option gives a sense of freedom in using the E-collar, which offers a muscle stimulation version of a correction. It is a button press instead of a pop on a leash for a prong collar. The ability to become reliable off-leash is an advanced understanding between owner and dog without the tether of a leash.
