Our trainer explained the techniques and voice commands very well. The training techniques were very different but were enjoyable and easy on the animal using vocal commands, body language and praise. The only difficulty initially was feeling comfortable and confident putting it into practice. I would recommend this technique to others. I am very anxious to see the effects of the training after some additional practice. I asked John to take Ginger home with him and bring me back a well trained dog, yet I understand now that the dog needs to respect me and my husband's commands and authority.
