Dog Training in Miami – Tip of the Day

 

Dog training is about establishing a strong, trusting, loving relationship with another species.

 

Punitive and forceful dog training methods based on punishment, force, bullying, confrontation and fear are associated with stress, health problems, shorter life spans and other negative consequences and also increases the risk of aggression towards people and other animals.

 

A recent large scientific study showed punitive techniques increase the risk of aggression in dogs1. They are associated with a 2.9 times increased risk of aggression to family members, and a 2.2 times increased risk of aggression to unfamiliar people outside of the household1.

 

Just as with humans, dogs learn most efficiently, healthily and stress free without punitive methods. So many people who are otherwise gentle and intelligent, get disinformation from ignoramus outdated traditional dog trainers and/or dog stores advising the use of choke chains, pronged collars, citronella spray collars, shock collars, tickle collars, stimulation collars, electronic collars (E-collars), electric fences, leash popping (to “correct” a dog), yelling, water bottle spraying, flooding, alpha rolling, scruffing, and/or hitting a dog to “teach” them. This is animal abuse, plain and simple.

 

Only look for dog trainers with the proper minimum certification from the CPDT and more importantly make sure they are a member of the Pet Professional Guild and practice force free dog training.
