Today more and more supporters among the so-called motivational training. But do not forget that although training methods have changed over time, the structure and principles of functioning of a dog’s psyche is always the same.
To train a dog – all the same what to learn to talk with a man from another country. Both need to learn to understand the language of each other. We have three ways in which we can communicate, body language, voice and touch.
