Our best friendâ€”the domestic dogâ€”is a social animal. It would be unfair and antisocial not to train it. How else could we communicate? Luckily, dogs can easily learn our languageâ€¦ if we teach them! Basically, training comprises teaching dogs ESLâ€”English as a Second Languageâ€”so that our dogs will understand human words for doggy behaviors and actions.
Lure/reward training is de rigeur for training a wide variety of animals, including lions, tigers, killer whales, and grizzly bears, Over a hundred years ago, similar reward-based methods were the accepted practice for training all dogs and puppies. Unfortunately, in the twentieth century, the Trainers from The Dark Side inflicted a harsher regime of laborious, on-leash, push-pull, squish-squash, narrow-brained methods on unsuspecting owners and their dogs. Sadly, domination was the focus and the poor defenseless dog was viewed as an adversary in the training arena. Force is unnecessary and almost always counterproductive. Why treat your best friend like your worst enemy?
Welcome back to the historically-proven, so-old-that-itâ€™s-new-again, natural, common-sense, and enjoyable way to train your dogâ€”off-leash, lure/reward, fun and games, dog-friendly dog training.
Dr. Dunbarâ€™s training techniques are altogether quicker, easier, gentler, more effective, and certainly considerably more enjoyable for you and your dog. And so without further ado, turn to the Good Manners section and begin training your puppydog right away. Lure/reward training techniques work like a treat!
