All dogs are different, as their training should be
There are about as many theories on dog training as there are dog trainers.
Simplified, most theories on training can be classified as reward based, correction based or a combination of the two. Reward based training ignores undesirable behaviors and re-enforces (rewards) the desired or good behaviors. Correction based training punishes or corrects the undesirable behaviors theorizing that the dog will avoid behaviors that elicit a correction.
