What is positive reinforcement training?

Positive reinforcement training uses praise and/or treats or toys to reward your dog for doing something you want him to do. Because the reward makes him more likely to repeat the behavior, positive reinforcement is one of your most powerful tools for shaping or changing your dog's behavior.

 

True positive reinforcement training uses force-FREE methods of teaching dogs behaviors.

 

Some trainers advertise positive reinforcement training,  however,  if they use force to teach dogs they are NOT positive trainers.

NO Force

NO Fear
