This is such an important subject. I'm delighted to see there is now clear, cite-able, published-study evidence that confrontational, correction-based training using shock collars, alpha rolls, shouting, 'dominance' techniques etc make problem dogs more problematical in a significant number of cases, and make aggressive dogs MORE aggressive.
