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 VERBAL FEEDBACK 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 Since 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.
