    You do know that the "I'm not judging part" was about sending my dog away, right? And, again, I wouldn't send my dog away to ANY type of trainer, I don't care how well I know them.

    I'm sorry, but you don't know what you are talking about. Why not ask me why I took two years to run him in the JH instead of putting your own personal spin on it to make it sound like we failed?

    Anytime anyone trains their dog in any style, wither R+ or traditional, and does it incorrectly, it is unfair to the dog. But, again, R+ is not all about cookies and if you think it is about cookies...

    I'm mostly talking about other sports because you're right, not many people doing higher level field work with higher level titles use R+ or progressive methods. I also think that they don't know...

    Methods are typically newer. R+ is not just clickers (in fact, a lot of R+ people don't use clickers) and treats.
