With so many different training methods available to dog trainers, research in dog training is very important. In this lecture Dr. Nicole Dorey will discuss some of the research that she is currently conducting in this area. The first study looks at methodology created to assess the maintaining variables in human problem behavior (FA) and how this methodology can be modified to assess problem behavior in dogs. The second study investigates different types of positive training methods. The hope is that this information will inspire dog trainers to think critically about the methods that they use and to investigate which is the best method for optimal learning.
