There are many traditional trainers using the same dog training methods they used 10 years ago. Fear based dog training involves shock and pinch collars, physical and/or mental abuse. These pain-induced methods are the easy way to train. Throwing a bag of chains at a dogs’ feet to stop their jumping is a fear based technique rather than teaching the dog an alternative way to greet. Shocking a dog into submission for being aggressive is a not teaching the dog the skills needed to deal with similar future situations. As every student is different and has different ways of learning so are the dogs and the methods. At Atlanta Dog Trainer’s Academy for Professional Dog Trainer you will learn how to train each dog individually with positive and effective training methods.
