Probably not what you were expecting to top the list, as we have all been trained to give both positive and negative feedback as a guide to young learners. However, using negative physical or verbal actions to redirect a puppy's behavior may not have the expected consequence. Not only do they come to associate displeasure with you, but they are not likely to form an association between discipline and the undesired act. Reward training, while requiring proactive effort and greater initiative, is found to be far more effective in conveying desired behavior for young dogs, and results in happier companions along with improved learning.
