I have myself watched the videos and understand the leadership and corrections. The dog bites me or the owner when she can’t get the reward fast enough after sitting or when she just doen’t want any training.. My dilema here is that I can’t really teach the dog phase 2 because I’m not an independent dog trainer but working for a company. So I can’t go off their curriculum too much which is of course based on positive reinforcement and negative punishment. I could only give the owners my opinion and information. And they didn’t feel comfortable doing it themselves.
Here is my question though, is their fear of messing up their puppy with Phase 2 training legitimate? When a layperson does this training, is there any downsides to this approach?
