I think Prometheans example is very clear and easy to understand. Makes sense to me.
However each situation is different, as is each dog. While Promethean gave a very good generalization, I disagree that dogs correlate correction, with stimulus ALL THE TIME, in every situation. Everything really depends on the dog and handler.

I do have a question for you Promethean, how would you handle a green working line dog, intended for high level sport work/patrol work? The reason I ask....I have never heard of anyone training a working dog from start to finish without using some type of physical correction, during the dogs life. If you have(or have insight on the topic) please advise!
The farther I dive down the 'rabbit hole' of working dogs, the more I realize, nobody really has a clue!
