5. Challenge and corrections
The key focus of this training process is to teach the dog to do nothing unless commanded. And to achieve this you punish the dog of unwanted behaviors.
Rewards, when offered are often of low value or no value to the dog.
With traditional dog training methods, dogs were often ‘set up’ or challenged so that they would make errors, in order that the error could be corrected.
For example to teach a dog not to move from the SIT position a trainer might leave the dog sitting in position until he attempts to get up and then punish the dog for doing so.
