Ethical Animal Behavior Professionals work to change and improve our canine companion's behavior issues by using sound, researched and ethical behavior change technology that follow a least intrusive but effective behavior intervention plan, i.e. classical conditioning, shaping wanted behavior,  differential reinforcement and desensitization. On the other hand, we have so called trainers using unethical  punitive, aversive, and "dominance" based methods that harm our pets. Being informed of this is important for the average pet owner to discern how to choose a qualified professional.
