Dog training is both an art and a science. Different approaches work for different dogs and the depth and breadth of the trainer’s knowledge, experience, and skills makes all the difference. No one methodology works for all dogs, but the approach taken to create a balanced and fulfilled dog and owner partnership are the same: mutual respect for one another and fairness. It is all about the relationship and the state of it. It is about the basic principles and not the methodology or tools used.
