Balanced Dog Training vs. Positive Reinforcement 


There are two main schools of thought when it comes to dog training: balanced training and positive reinforcement training.

Balanced Training

Balanced training uses a combination of positive reinforcement and negative reinforcement to train dogs. 

Positive Reinforcement Training

Positive reinforcement training only uses positive reinforcement to train dogs.

 Pros and Cons

The pros of balanced training are that it can be effective in training dogs to behave in a variety of situations. 

 Pros and Cons

The pros of positive reinforcement training are that it is a gentle and effective way to train dogs, and it is less likely to lead to fear or aggression.

Which Method

The best method for you will depend on your dog's personality and your own preferences.
