Management... an Important Part of Dog Training

By Dennis Stauffer, Kennel Manager, ABCDT, ABC Mentor Trainer

Living with dogs involves training AND management. We train them so that they know what we want them to do and how to behave in our homes, with people and other animals. We train them to have good manners, to do silly tricks, to work as a therapy dog, or to just be wonderful family companions. Management, on the other hand, involves preventing dogs from doing what we do not want them to do, as they are learning (via positive reinforcement training) what we do want them to do.
