Depends what I'm doing and what dog I'm working with. I lure a lot. Free shape some, but mostly luring. I don't use corrections when I teach - its all fun and upbeat. The corrections come in when I'm proofing. But I have come to the conclusion that I hate dogs that don't enjoy learning. I guess I was spoiled with Blackie and then Chloe, because both of them loved working and figuring out new things. Chloe understands how to follow a lure and knows that it is me guiding her to do the correct thing - and once she figures out what that correct thing is, the lure can be pretty much nullified and she's good to go. She also knows that when I'm shaping she should offer behaviors and just try things. When she gets a response, she builds on it. Mike's dogs drive me nuts because they have no desire to learn. They're well behaved and learn house manners well...but good Lord, trying to teach them to even sit is like pulling teeth because they have zero drive to figure anything out. Gracie won't even lure. Its so frustrating.
