Dog Training

Dog Training

Dog training involves training a dog to obey basic control commands such as sit, down, and heel.

There are almost as many methods of training as there are trainers, but over time the basic strategy has shifted away from punishment or avoidance training (negative reinforcement) to positive reinforcement, where the dog is rewarded for doing the correct thing during most phases of training rather than being punished for not doing what the trainer wants.

Nowadays it is possible to take your dog to a training school, or purchase dog training information on the internet in the form of books, videos and CDs.
