I subscribe to the balanced dog training method in order to help the dogs that I work with overcome their behavioral problems to become more happy, balanced, members of their families.
Balanced training is similar to how you would treat a child. When they do something right, they get a reward. When they do something they know they shouldn’t do, they are corrected.

The Keys to a Calmer, More Balanced Dog
They need to master the basic commands like sit, stay, come, down, etc. that all “good dogs” should know.
correcting problem behaviors
If your dog is struggling with problem behaviors--anything from jumping to aggression--you need to provide a correction AND give your dog a better option.
improving the relationship between dog & owner
Your dog needs to know that you will hold them accountable, and you need to feel empowered in ways to do that.
