What “tools” are and aren’t used in positive training?

Use: Plain flat buckle collars or harnesses (see the links page for Pam’s favorite picks), regular leashes, tons of food, praise, toys, games, petting and of course, YOUR ever increasing knowledge about how dogs learn and how punishment can create a whole host of unwanted behaviors and how to build a positive relationship with your furry friend.

Don’t Use: Prong collars, choke collars, electric shock collars, head halters, yanking, pulling, helicoptering, yelling (yes, even yelling “NO” is not allowed), screaming, hitting, kicking, shake cans with pennies in them, spray bottles, etc.
