(Cindy Moore,

First, you should understand that there are two components to "training" and they are frequently mixed. There is the kind of training that solves behavioral problems. There is also the kind of training that creates a command-response pattern. It is perfectly possible to have a dog that heels, sits, and stays perfectly and digs out all your marigolds. Conversely, you may have a dog that does not destroy things in your house nor jump up on people, but does not sit or heel. For purposes of clarity, the former type of training is considered "behavior modification" and the latter type as "obedience training."
