We have 3 basic philosophies here:
1) Never give a dog a command if you're not prepared to follow through.
2) Always use as much praise as possible and as little compulsion as necessary to acheive your goals.
3) Never set your dog up to fail.
We have had great success sticking with these philosophies and the level of obedience and respect we get from our dogs, while maintaining their happy and trusting demeanors, has firmly reinforced in our minds that we are doing something right. For clients dogs we are currently using the clicker method, slightly modified, to train. I have trained with Sit Means Sit of SE Columbus  apprenticed under Cory Dewberry of Dewberry Family K9, and am a member of Central Ohio Dog Sports, and a member of PSA.
