Negative vs Positive Reinforcement in Dog Training

It is our hope that there are fewer and fewer dog agility trainers not using positive reinforcement in their programs.

If you are on the fence or don’t understand the difference between positive and negative reinforcement, this video has a vivid example.

You may think that negative reinforcement only involves choke chains and shock collars, but that isn’t the case at all.

Eileen helps you to understand that negative training can be as simple as walking into your dog’s space to get them to move.

She then shows the stark contrast in the dog’s response to an action trained with both methods, but using a different cue.
