Training dogs from the outside-in rather than the inside-out
The way training evolved in our culture over the last 60 years or so were people who came out of canine training at the end of world war two? They became civilian dog trainers. When I think back to the type of training I was taught when I was starting out, forty years ago, compulsion was the method. And when you think about it and think in terms of what soldiers had to do then you'll know why they trained military style. The mistake was to bring it to companion dog training.
A soldier had to be ready to fire his weapon at another human being without thinking about it. Ready, aim, fire was what soldiers had to practice over and over and still people would not fire. Sit, down, stay, which is very much the same as ready, aim, fire was created for dogs. Have you ever wondered the reasoning and significance of having a dog on your left side? It was because a soldier's rifle was held on his right side.
Military trainers like "Koehler" for example was a high - profile trainer that worked with dogs in Hollywood, he had a military police dog training background, to which he published the "The Koehler Method of Training" back in the 60s. His training methods emphasized negative training and punishment, physical corrections and often involved chain training collars, and other unpleasant training techniques, the dogs that succeeded responded with military type of precision.
