I follow modern, science based methods. I will not recommend or use tools or methods that will cause pain, discomfort or distress to your dog. I firmly believe that training should be fun for those at both ends of the lead.
Whilst I am positive, I am not permissive. I do believe that dogs need kind, compassionate guidance, they do need rules and boundaries in order to live happily and safely alongside us. But I believe that these rules and boundaries can be put in place using kind methods.
