Thread: Inducive or Complusive Training

    Inducive.

    No animal including human works for praise reward, in the end we all have to get paid for what we do. More importantly, the individual getting paid decides if the payment offered is worth anything - for most dogs that means food or play. The use of food is the most reliable method of making a behavior salient to animal when teaching it and then to reinforce this behavior. With the use of food, you can make praise a secondary reinforcer. However as apes, we put far more value on physical contact than dogs ever will.

    Personally i will use both depending on what i am doing, what dog i am training etc...
    I prefer to use compulsive for obedience commands eg sit drop stand, but will use inducive for trick training along with my clicker...

    Having said that my foster Shar Pei x Staffy is being trained inducive rather then compulsive due to his history...

    I use a clicker and praise for my boy (as he is not food orientated) and for my girl I did use treats but now she will do it anyway so she gets treats on occasion. I agree with either means as long as it works and the dog is happy.
