Training doesn't limit a dog. Training frees a dog. My dog, being trained, is free - free to walk with me, free to ride with me, free to play off-leash with other dogs, free to learn and run. An untrained dog is "free" to sit in the backyard where he can get into as little trouble as possible.

Do what you know in your heart to be right.

Never confuse positive training with permissive, “slow to progress”, or boring. Good positive training has all of the qualities of good traditional training – high expectations, consequences, and both handler and dog responsibilities.
