What is "Balanced Training"?
To me, balanced training is about not limiting oneself to only one approach but knowing how to use a variety of tools and techniques to help different dogs with different problems effectively.
Balanced training is not about political agenda or ideology, but about keeping an open mind and not handicapping oneself with an "... only" or "... free" approach because there is no one-size-fits-all.
Balanced training is not an exclusion of positive training; instead, it is an inclusion of positive reinforcement and more.
It is all about helping dogs and owners and putting their needs first.
