MCT uses Progressive Reinforcement Training which is a type of animal training that involves no forms of intimidation, confrontation, violence, reprimands, or domination. Our training involves a clicker or verbal cue to mark a desirable behaviour and being proactive rather than reactive, this type of training is for life, it teaches the dog to think for himself and learn to make the correct decisions because those choices have been reinforced. To dedicate oneself to this type of training you must be 100% committed to the end goal, once you reach that goal, you'll be so proud to bring your pooch everywhere and enjoy the time you spend with your dog. Sometimes it's hard to change training methods especially if you've always followed the traditional corrective training methods (as most of us had growing up), but once you start seeing the benefits of PRT and start to understand that your dog learns differently then us humans, you won't train any other way.
This non-violent type of training has gone under many names: "clicker training", "positive training","positive reinforcement training," and "reward training," among others. However due to people using the term so loosely in recent years that they are losing their original meanings altogether. How has this happened? Trainers who use compulsion methods (do it because I told you to) may incorporate a clicker (noise maker to mark desirable behaviour) and refer to themselves as "reward trainers" or "positive reinforcement trainers." It is possible that a member of the public may seek the guidance of a trainer who claims to be "positive," only to find out that this trainer routinely uses physical violence towards animals.
