this seminar dvd can be found at www.tawzerdog.com Hyperactivity, Reactivity & Lack of Attention (at Home with Owner, On-Leash & Off-Leash When dogs collide with adolescence, hyperactivity and reactivity wax and attention wanes. Reactivity requires oodles of classical conditioning (with effective operant conditioning appearing as an unexpected co-star). Hyperactivity and lack of attention require all-or-none reward training. Hyper dogs are so trainable the motivation is already there! Attention and reliability (measured by decreases in Command: Response Ratios) come when hyper dogs are calmed. Decreasing hyperactivity and reactivity allows dogs to maintain their quality of life.
