Training a puppy is like raising a child. Every single interaction is a training opportunity.
Learning from wolves to interact with pet dogs makes about as much sense as, 'I want to improve my parenting - let's see how the chimps do it!'
You don't train a dog in a training hall, jerking his neck or even giving him food treats. You train him using life rewards.
You can instill fear in your kids and get them to mind, but they won't function better in the world and your relationship will suffer greatly.
When I'm training a dog, I develop a relationship with that dog. He's my buddy, and I want to make training fun.
