This is the same guy, Lindsey Ridgeway, referred to in teacher504's post. I'm pretty sure he's all positive, he does not force fetch, has never used an ecollar and I'm pretty sure doesn't use a heeling stick; not sure about choke chains/scolding though. I've trained with him too and his dog Laddie has finished one or two Qs which is quite a big accomplishment for that type of training. Laddie is a very talented & well bred Golden, FC/AFC sire x FC dam; he's got tons of go. Lindsey is not judgmental about the way others train but he is very dedicated to training his own dog using positive methods.
