We will be reaching into the depths of behavior science and showing you how to decrease unwanted behaviors without punishing the dog. We are never punishing a dog, we are decreasing an unwanted behavior. Dogs are animals by nature, we need to teach them how to behave appropriately in our human-oriented society.
