When it comes to dog training, there are two different types of training methods that are very popular. These methods are inductive training and conductive training. Inductive training refers to positive praise of the desired behavior, and the only negative reinforcement is to maintain that praise. A more aggressive approach is conducive, where force and/or negative verbal abuse is used when the dog has done something wrong. At the American School of Dog Training, a mix of both inductive and conductive training is used.

The fact is that inductive training can be quite effective. The only drawback is that it is a slow process and something only the most patient of people can follow. However, overemphasis on punishment and conductive training gives you the effect of the dog obeying you, but only with the attitude of “I’m only doing this because otherwise I’ll get punished.” Most people don’t want their dog to have this kind of attitude.

The American School of Dog Training has followed the latest developments in how dogs process thoughts and uses them to train the dogs that come to them. What they have found is that too much negativity when training a dog is counterproductive to getting results. However, it seems to be necessary to use the least amount of negative reinforcement in order to train the dog effectively. Of course, the amount of punishment administered varies greatly from dog to dog.

In other words, this school differs from other training schools that take a more straightforward approach to training and do not involve each dog on an individual, personal level.

By using a personal approach of mostly positive conditioning with some negative conditioning, the school has found an effective method of training.

In their normal training schedule, they work to establish 13 to 21 different obedient commands for the dog to follow, and they also work to correct behavior problems, as they are observed.

In addition, they offer specialized training for protection training. A guard dog is trained to protect an area, while a personal protection dog is trained to protect the family. Personal protection training is the type of training used at your facility.

In conclusion, the American Dog Training School offers a good opportunity to a dog owner who wants to train his dog to be more obedient or to protect the family.
