AVSAB’s Position on Humane Dog Training (2021)

American Veterinary Society of Animal Behavior (AVSAB) has released their unequivocal position on the best dog training methods.

“Reward-based training methods have been shown to be more effective than aversive methods. Multiple survey studies have shown higher obedience in dogs trained with reward-based methods.”

– AVSAB, 2021

 

“Many methods of changing behavior in dogs are effective; however, the evidence-based veterinarian or behavior consultant should be concerned not just with what is effective but what does the least harm and produces the best long-term results.”

ASVAB, 2021

All of my training methods are positive, research-based, and Doodle-specific.
