What is the difference between training and behavior therapy?

Training teaches an animal to respond to “commands” like come, sit and stay. Behavior Therapy isolates the causes for inappropriate and undesirable behavior and effects the animal’s motivations and emotions that accompany behavior. For example: if your dog is mischievous or worse yet, is aggressive towards you or someone else, teaching it to come or sit on command, likely won’t inhibit the undesired behaviors. The two are discreet things.
