  1. The study of dog behavior and dog training from a non-politically correct
    or bias perspective. Seeing is believing regardless of academic argument.
    Every successful person has villains. Galileo in the 16th century said the
    world was round and could prove it but was incarcerated for speaking the
    truth. Albert Einstein was told he did not have the credentials to speak of
    quantum physics he did not have a degree. Always question and think outside
    the box. I have looked at the expert opinions of many dog behaviorist
    veterinarians that claim they are the number one authority. After years of
    witnessing the failure of food manipulation and irrational claims of
    success I bring to you an opinion that is worth researching in practice not
    a text book. David Utter

  2. Personally I use all positive methods and have great success with it. Your
    claim that it doesn’t work or can’t be proven, is ridiculous because if you
    do a simple YouTube search for “positive reinforcement dog training” you
    will find hundreds of videos of successful trainers using said methods.
    Also, your assumption that ALL positive based methods never make their dog
    unhappy is ridiculous. You still use punishment with positive training
    methods, you just don’t use force. I won’t say your methods don’t work,
    because there are many ways to skin a cat, or a dog in this case; but I
    will say, in my opinion, that positive reinforcement training is the best
    way to train any dog.

  3. Thankyou, thankyou and thankyou! David you have voiced and spoken on behalf
    of every balanced trainer. No more talk from other camps, it’s time to cash
    in and show us what you do and do “force free”. PLEASE!

  4. Studies do prove that positive methods make for a more reliable dog. Here
    are just two such examples.
    http://thebark.com/content/positive-reinforcement-dog-training Also don’t
    forget that positive methods use positive reinforcement and negative
    punishment. So they do make dogs “unhappy”. When you shut down a dog’s
    fear aggression you do nothing but keep the dog from warning you when it is
    afraid, the fear is still there. If and when the dog feels it must protect
    itself it will not warn you like a normal dog would. (Stiffen, growl,
    snap), it will just bite as it has been trained to not give warnings. I
    never repeat myself in training or with my child that teaches them nothing
    but to not listen to you so your analogy is not correct. 

  5. Albert Einstein spoke of universal laws of consciousness. All species
    understand something because of an opposite acronym. We cannot understand
    love without hate. Light without dark. A fish does not know it is in water.
    Complaining about the universe will not get us any success. Psychology
    cannot exist without a conscious reflection of an opposite. Correction is
    not necessarily punitive damage. Humans are not very rational to debate
    universal laws that are a constant. We cannot understand the true meaning
    of something such as love or positive reinforcement only without
    experiencing an opposite. Making claims you have video examples of positive
    reinforcement training only success is like writing a book on child
    psychology using 5 children as an example. My methods are not demonstrated
    in detail in the videos to be comprehended in the entirety of application
    and success. If dogs use physical correction in the past millions of years
    go ague with the dog.

  6. That’s not true . Most pressure trainers also use positive
    reinforcement…We mark the good behavior with good along with praise or
    toy. Also using a remote collar you call “electrocution” You should look up
    the definition of that work. The correct word would be stimulation…
    Talking about Galileo and Einstein wont convince me you know what your
    talking about, but your talking to the masses that don’t know anything
    about dogs…I clearly question your methods but wont waste my time
    watching any of this 

  7. Obviously Peter did not listen to the entire video. All my methods are
    based on using positive reinforcement with and praising the good behavior
    at higher ratios than any correction. Get your facts on listening better
    Peter before criticizing methods that may be in your agreement. Also
    playing with words such as electrocution and stimulation does not change
    the concept that electricity is produced and charged into the dogs body.
    Good luck with your physics lecture.
