    Emotional well-being vs observable behavior

    Emotional well-being vs observable behavior

    It’s OK to be frustrated with your dogs behavior. And sometimes it’s OK to change the dog’s behavior so that you can be more comfortable. But that doesn’t mean you’ve changed how the dog feels.

    Reward Placement

    In this live, we talked about how the placement of reinforcement impacts both precision and attitude. We considered this both in the realm of pet training and competition dogs. We talked about how to do a Cue transfer, considered dogs that are good candidates for luring versus shaping, and touched on the impact of patterns vs unpredictable choices in our work.
