Truth and Myths in Modern Dog Training
Available for pre-order / backorder
About the Book
Dog training methodology is an increasingly hotly-contested topic. A vocal number of trainers insist that dogs should be instructed through exclusively positive reinforcement, and that training should be totally force free. Utilizing social media, force free training movement has grown into a lucrative, billion-dollar industry, but the consequences may outweigh the positives.
This book examines the current state of dog training in order to determine ethical alternatives to force free methods. Chapters cover the history of dog training, common myths, equipment, and the merits of balanced training methods that don’t dogmatically avoid occasional force.
