The World Dog Trainers Motivation Transparency Challenge was started by John McGuigan, who was inspired by Jean Donaldson’s 3 questions to dog trainers:
- What will happen to my dog if he gets it right?
- What will happen to my dog if he gets it wrong?
- Are there any less invasive alternatives to what you propose?
The nominated trainers will answer those 3 questions in a small video, which they upload to YouTube, to raise awareness of positive training and raise the standard of modern dog training.
You can see John McGuigan kick the challenge off here:
There is a facebook group dedicated to this challenge – you can visit it here. There are some interesting videos already and the challenge has only been going for 5 days, so hopefully more will come!
