Every dog has a unique personality and disposition. Whether it is a fresh young puppy mind or an older dog, pure bred or lovable mongrel, a balanced training program is a must. Even the most famous psychic or celebrity dog trainer cannot wave a magic wand and change every pets personality with only one tool in their toolbox. Why? Because dogs are individuals too. Any quality trainer will have more than one method in their training toolbox to suit each families situation. And every pup will require a little more or less of each depending on their personality, breeding, and size. Knowing how and when to apply different techniques is not a mechanical decision easily learned or taught, but an instinct that only the most successful dog trainers have in their soul. Reading canine body language comes easily to these 'dog gurus', and you will want one training you and your dog.
Some methods such as clickers and treats have been proven to get results fast, and work well for tricks or dog sports such as agility. Most often however, if used exclusively for dog obedience, most pet parents unwittingly become "cookie-pushers" and get little respect when their pockets are empty.
