There are many different types of training methods out there. Depending on the dog you will need to decide whether your dog responds better to correction or positive training. In my experience there is a place for both type of trainings. Leadership consistency and clear direction is the best. Many dogs train extremely well with direction then follow with play. Spending time with your dog and being clear on what you expect of your dog makes both your lives and commitment to each other strong.
The more time you spend with your dog the better the bond the easier you training sessions will be.
Remember to touch your dog a lot it is a vital training tool and its a reward your dog craves.
Training takes time commitment and lots of effort
but you will own a great dog in the end!
Remember if you don't make the rules your dogs will!
