POSITIVE OR NEGATIVE REINFORCEMENT

September 2010

It's surfaced yet again... Positive versus negative but this time because dog trainers just can't agree on whether we should be turning our dogs over and pinning them down (the alpha roll) and supposedly letting them know just who is boss in the relationship. Or coaxing them out of the unwanted behavior with a tasty snack and treating them as an equal, trainers are taking it to higher levels to decide on who is right and who is wrong!

Isn't is a shame that they can't be a little more open - minded and remember that all dogs are different and what might just work on one breed of dog albeit positive or negative doesn't mean that it will work on another.

You might be able to turn and pin your Cocker Spaniel down when he lunges aggressively at the Bichon Frise in the park but your going to have a task on your hands if it's an Irish Wolf Hound you own, that tasty treat distraction just might have the desired effect.
