5 Dinner Guests

I don’t want to have dinner until after we are done training! 

However here is what I would like to do!  I would love to invite 6 of the top trainers in the world!  I want 3 from the positive only camp and 3 from the force only camp!  I want them all in the same room and I am going to hand pick a dog for each of them from a local shelter.  I would like for each of the trainers to work with the dog 2 times a day for a week and after a week I want them to write out a training course for that particular dog and how long it will approximately take for a novice with little knowledge of dogs to be able to take said dog, follow their recommended program, and pass a Canine Good Citizen test!  Then I will hand pick 6 novice trainers that are willing to follow that program and see what the success rates are!

After all this is done I them want to sit down with everyone involved and see what worked, what didn’t, and WHY the trainers think that some things didn’t work?  I want an honest open discussion! No name calling, no accusations, keep it about behavior!

I think this would be incredibly interesting and insightful!  Your thought’s???
