5 Popular Ways To Train Your Dog With Food #170
Listen now
Visit us at shapedbydog.com    If someone says to you that they are a reinforcement-based dog trainer, what does that really mean? There are a lot of ways of training dogs with food or toys. Even though they fall under the reinforcement grouping, the different types of training are all dramatically different. We’re covering what I tried in the past, what I suggest you avoid, and the most effective way to shape your dog.   In the episode you'll hear:   • About training dogs by luring and using food or toys as a lure. • What's termed observational learning or social learning, or sometimes modelling. • About Stella the Kelpie and Bunny the Sheepadoodle using buttons to communicate. • Some of the words that dogs understand and words that excite my dogs. • What capturing behavior means and how to get a captured behavior like a stretch or talking. • About shaping, and the critical difference between two styles used to shape a behavior. • The reason I don't free shape these days and prefer layered shaping. • How to make the correct choice for the dog the obvious choice. • Why splitting behaviours down creates confidence for dogs and give you a strong foundation.   Resources:   1.
