The Case Against Dominance/Pack Theory

The Case Against Dominance/Pack Theory

An excellent film with very knowledgeable people. There is no excuse for any trainer to still be using dominance theory as a foundation for their training when the science has proven that positive reinforcement provides better results.

Any trainers still using force and fear are not providing their customers with the latest methods. You can be assured that at Full Pawtential all methods used are as up to date as can be because I have spent the time and money to study and learn the most effective and ethical ways to train dogs and continue to do with ongoing CPD.

I am also a paid member of the Pet Professional Guild who check my methods and ethics are force-free and using positive reward-based training and reinforcement. When you are looking for a trainer, make sure they are up to date, ask questions about where and when they have studied, and if you are unhappy about a method someone uses, walk out because your instincts are probably right.

It doesn’t matter what breed your dog is, there is never a need to use force or aversive methods or equipment, and don’t let anyone tell you any different.
