In my experience, most snags in the dog training process result from miscommunication, not willfulness, stubbornness, or dominance. While this article is geared toward training the family dog, the fact is that whether your dog is strictly a family pet, a competitor in canine sports, or a full-time working dog, getting the most out of your training time means learning to communicate effectively with your dog.
When considering training a dog, most owners only give thought to basic dog obedience classes. However in doing so, they ultimately end up limiting what a dog is capable of accomplishing. In addition, basic obedience is the extent of the training offered by many dog trainers. The fact is though, some dog training facilities offer a large variety of dog training classes that teach much more than just dog obedience training. They are looking to provide you as the owner and your dog a much bigger selection. By doing so, knowledge gained from any of these specialty classes will help to bring out the best in your dog and maximize his potential.
There's another reason why reward training produces better results than aversive training. Consistency is essential when you're training a dog. If you're using corrections and punishment to discourage unwanted behavior, you'll need to consistently punish your dog each and every time he performs that behavior. Well, we're not robots, and it's impossible to be ready to do this every minute of the day. You'd need to never leave home and never take your eyes off your dog before you'd even have a chance of punishing him every time he makes a behavioral mistake. Make one slip-up and fail to punish your dog for a mistake, and he'll learn that sometimes he can get away with the misbehavior. That's probably not the lesson you want him to learn.
