Why would you want to train your dog at any cost? Do you really think you have to mentally condition or ‘break’ your dog through training in order to have a good relationship with them?
So why ‘Non-Training’?
Making a good choice of dog will help in creating a good household routine. Dogs needs to be understood. The relationship that you build with him/her is the result of applying common sense, of using skill, and of understanding basic dog communication. This relationship does not include confrontation or violence, which simply weakens your connection with your pet. Understanding your dog involves watching him or her, thinking about what s/he does, calming his or her fears and not believing in the idea of the ‘total power’ of the master over his animal. A dog is a sensitive creature. And this should make us wary of cruel methods of training such as electric collars, spiked collars, long periods being shut away and over-the-top punishments.
