Why choose a force/fear free trainer?
Because of science of course!
It has been proven that using aversive training tools/methods (shock/prong collars, physically hitting) has caused damage to dogs over a period of time. Both Mental and Physical.
Fear/Force free trainer's take into consideration not only physical well-being but also mental.
Here are some articles on why aversive do more harm than good.
