SADTC training methods focus on positive reinforcement but at the same time do not just pretend and/or ignore bad behaviour – many other schools are only focusing in praise and not correct wrong/bad behaviour.
Also, SADTC accepts that there are pack dynamics and does not claim that the dog does not come and/or is influenced from the wolf. Many “new age” schools are now advising the dog and wolf have no connection or similarities.
Also their methods make sense and are based upon knowledge and experience and clearly work.
After training at SADTC for a few weeks it was abundantly clear that handlers are encouraged to keep learning about their dog, and continued experience and knowledge is important.
The overall ability and knowledge of the members as a whole shows us clearly that SADTC and their members have a huge interest and a love for dogs – this is infectious and makes one want to be a better and more informed dog owner.
