I've lucked out and found a trainer, who has been training, showing, raising and judging dogs for about 20 years. He uses both alot of praise and rewards, ie food. He does believe in using corrections but only when needed and when he is sure the dog understands what is required. So far we're on to our 4th class this week and there certainly is a change in Bayley. He really helps in what I'm doing incorrectly..(alot!) And of course puts most of what the dog isn't doing correctly onto the person.
