What Is Balanced Training?

What is “Balanced Training?”

Balanced Dog Training is the art of utilizing all four quadrants of learning to create clarity and to help your dog best understand what is expected of them in a fair and safe manner. The four quadrants of learning include: positive reinforcement (the most crucial, especially in early stages of learning), negative reinforcement (taking away a reinforcement that the dog considers to be of value), positive punishment and negative punishment. Using all four quadrants in training can help your dog better understand what it is you are asking of them, and also help establish clear and precise communication. You can learn more about the four quadrants of learning with the image below.

A good balanced dog trainer will help empower you and your dog through structured learning that is relationship-based and help set you up to succeed by giving you and your dog all the tools you need to be successful in your journey!
