LIMA guidelines currently rank negative punishment and negative reinforcement at equivalent levels of invasiveness. This webinar will explore whether this is ethically defensible when applied to the presenting problems faced by dog trainers. The webinar will also suggest contexts where antecedent arrangements are contra-indicated from a welfare perspective. Webinar Objectives Help trainers think critically about LIMA as it applies in practical dog training contexts.
