Shawn is often presented with the question "what method do you use?" The answer to this question is a formulation based on the dog's behavior, the owners' or families' capabilities, and the desired result. While there are many dog trainers, very few of them stray from their comfort zone or preset ideas—Shawn chooses methods based on results. One day, Shawn may use classical conditioning using food and clickers to recreate a 'Pavlov's dogs' scenario. Other days, he may employ operant conditioning using an E-touch electronic collar to prevent a dog from going through a front window. The options are endless! The method he chooses depends on your specific dog and circumstances.
