Canine Training - There Are Two Components: Teaching And Motivating
There are two components to training: teaching and motivating. First we teach our friend, the dog, what something means. A behavior is linked with a cue, either a word or a signal. Then we motivate the dog to want to give us that behavior. It sounds very simple, and it can be, when you understand your dog's unique perspective. What most people don't realize, is that each method of teaching and motivating has different side-effects, some we want, some we don't.
