Talking Best training for your dog?

So guys what do you consider the best or the most appropriate methods of training for your dogs?

Well I personally train my dogs using clicker training and so far it's the most appropriate for me.

I know dogs do differ when it comes to how they respond to you or how you train them, but clicker training fits just right for me.

How about you guys?

I love clicker training as much as my dogs do.

I train with a clicker aswell, I can't be thankful enough for whats its done to help Buster in the last few years. I think shaping is the most incredible thing to watch happen.

I've never gotten the hang of the clicker (I'm a klutz). I find it easier to "click" what I want with a verbal "Yes!". I also use treats and luring. Did that make sense to anyone? LOL

I do mostly lure/reward and capturing. I rarely use a clicker, but I sometimes use a verbal marker, and technically the way I train them, their release word is a very powerful marker. I do a lot of building muscle memory. I also do use corrections in the form of collar pops occasionally.

Yup, I do that, too. I'll shape with Chloe when I teach her tricks, and it is fun to see what she comes up with. LOL When I teach basic obedience, I rely on a lure.

I'll use corrections as well, mainly when they already grasp what I want and just choose not to do it. But they both know what "Ah ah!" means. LOL

Clicker shaping for new behaviours for Pit, lure clicker for the other two.

Clicker, lots of luring. I'll shape on occasion but I have to be pretty liberal in my rewards because she gets frustrated quickly. But for the most part, lures.

Some clicker, a lot of positive reinforcement without the clicker (sometimes with a verbal marker), ahttp://www.chazhound.com/forums/t125201/nd some corrections (usually a verbal "no" marker or collar pops).

Guide work I do with verbal praise and collar pops. No treats.

Most other things I start with the clicker and then fade it out. I do some luring, some shaping, and some modeling, but I think shaping is the most common.

I did clicker training at first, then did some luring, now I'm trying to get back to shaping and clicker, and maybe a little bit of luring and capturing which I do a lot of as is. I have used collar pops before when working on LLW but I like capturing with the clicker better for that and heeling since he responds better to that than any sort of physical correction.
