    Hi Teresa,

    We thought we’d take Manny to an obedience school but they’re purely positive trainers which is hard when we’ve started on phase 2 exercises and have a prong collar. They HATE the prong collar and can’t believe there’s any way to use it humanely. very frustrating!

    Then our local council has ordered us to have another trainer come and consult with us and she also uses purely positive methods. She specialises in ‘reactive’ dogs so i’m hoping we’ll at least get to start desensitizing Manny with some other dogs around.

    Any tips for dealing with purely positive based trainers when we want to use the foundation style?
