For owners of unruly dogs, a short yank on their lead and a stern telling-off can sometimes seem the only way of keeping their wayward pets in line.

But a new study claims that such methods of making sure your dog behaves can cause the animal mental trauma and have an impact on its welfare.

IMO the vast majority of training needs to be of positive reinforcement. Any negative reinforcement has to used very carefully...usually only to stop behaviors that have potentially bad/dangerous outcomes.
