Punishment stops unwanted behavior, Rewards increases wanted behavior.
Punishment stops unwanted behavior, rewards increases wanted behavior There is so much nonsense about how punishment is bad for dogs and you should only reward dogs for the behavior you want. Ignoring the unwanted behavior will NEVER stop it, if anything it will only increase since you have not told the dog it is not acceptable. Punishment is just information, it is not abuse and that conversation that is put out there is extremely irresponsible bordering on unethical behavior from trainers who believe that you should only reward and never punish. Watch the video above which is taken from a Facebook Live session as I get into it pretty deep.
