buckeyemanohio Posted February 16, 2015 Report Share Posted February 16, 2015 Ok I have posted before and have proclaimed my love for animals. Just so you all know that before I start asking questions and telling you how I have trained in the past. I trained my black lab with using a training collar and correcting him when he disobeyed. He learned extremely fast and I taught him very quickly how to come, sit, stay, lay, and heel. I have heard that using ALL positive training could be dangerous in a situation where the dog wants to chase something and he rather get the prey vs having his treat from his handler. Does this happen with positive training? How will the dog know that he is not to run and to stay with me because he will get treats? I don't want to hurt my dog but I also don't want my dog to get hurt by poorly training him and he runs out in front of a car or attacks a small child. Would it be best to use the training collar (some call it choke collar) or a prong collar? Or is it best to not use those collars at all? In a perfect world where there are no distractions I wouldn't worry but there are going to be distractions and life threatening situations that can arise either to my dog or to other dogs or humans and I do not want that to happen. I want a dog that will respect and obey me and that we can have a long lasting relationship of love and trust. Any and all help or experiences you have endured would be greatly appreciated it.
