Most dogs react negatively to corrections because that is how they are taught to react. I teach mydogs to react positively to corrections by using praise, play and food.Initially, when giving a correction for misbehavior, I teach my dog that he should expect praise, playand or food immediately after a correction by making sure that is exactly what he receives. Theninstead of sulking after corrections he gets excited by it. Then as the dog is learning –I delay thetime that he would receive praise, play or food by waiting for him to respond correctly after thecorrection and then rewarding w/ praise and play or food. The delay should begin in 5-secondintervals, then 10 second, till the dog is waiting and paying attention for 1 minute before praise andfood/play. Then the dog learns that correct behaviors illicit a play/food response from his owner.Some dogs have a higher play drive than food and would rather play than eat. Each dog is differentand it is up to you to figure out what motivates your dog. Hopefully, your dog is a well-balanced dogwill work for food or play.Also, don’t use the training equipment only when the dog is behaving badly. Let him wear histraining collar and leash when you have no intention of training/correcting. Don’t allow your dog toget collar wise/leash wise by only putting the collar and or leash on him when he is behaving badlyor when you are going to train with him.Consideration, Anticipation, Preparation: Consider what your dog is going to do.Anticipate his reaction, and be prepared to correct him for misbehavior.” SchellenbergA skillful trainer will, of course, discourage (option 1) by making that choice even moreunpleasant, and he will encourage (option 2) by immediately rewarding the dog fordesirable behavior.” Schellenberg
