Friday: WE CONTINUE TO WASTE PUPPYHOOD!!!
There are huge
holes in basic puppy husbandry that lead to a drastic decrease in quality of
life for far too many dogs and their owners and of course, for many dogs, loss
of life itself. Puppy prevention of behavior problems and aggression towards
people is as easy as it is enjoyable.
Saturday: LEARNING THEORY REDUX - BINARY
Binary verbal feedback is instructive and analogue. Verbal
feedback is by far the best means for people to effectively correct unwanted
behavior and to achieve absolute compliance without using aversive stimuli
without even raising our voice.
Sunday: OFF-LEASH LURE/REWARD TRAINING
luring allows us to predict precisely when the dog will perform the desired
behavior, lure-reward training enables us: to begin to associate the verbal cue
with the required behavior from the very first trial, to teach hand-signals
within a dozen trials, to implement a differential reinforcement from the second
trial, and to teach the verbal cues for several behaviors at the same time.
