2. BEHAVIOR MANAGEMENT Positive-reinforcement training teaches basic commands through a reward based training technique. Shock collars, choke collars and other punishment based techniques utilize fear. This actually weakens the bond with our pet. Good training enables you to manage and enjoy your dog at home and in public. With good manners, your dog can become a part of the family, knowing how to greet someone politely at the door, coming back when called, and walking safely under control on a leash. These are skills that develop with clear, calm communication between owner and dog.
