Theory in practice can be entirely different. Most learning theory is based on research studies of computers consistently delivering precise and finite, quantum consequences (food pellets or electric shock} to laboratory rats and pigeons. Dog owners' inconsistencies are a major constraint in training. However, via their binary, analogue, verbal feedback (verbal praise and reprimand), pet dog training may transcend learning theory. Praise can always be differentially reinforcing and punishment need not invoke fear or pain.
