Novice obedience typically focuses on teaching a dog what to do. Dogs are taught to sit, lie down. More advanced students may teach their dog to identify scents or navigate various obstacles on an agility course. The opportunities are endless. Being right is only 1/4 of the matrix. Sometimes there are costs to errors. For example, if a dog is trained to identify the scent of drugs at an airport that makes errors could be letting perpetrators walk by. Alternatively, they might send innocent people for unnecessary searches, embarrassment, and possibly damage to property. Learning Objectives - Learn why the argument for the use of force is faulty logic. Accuracy and consistency can be achieved without pain or fear!!! - Assess “good enough” in any situation, any sport using a truth table. - Learn the function of a truth table (matrix), and how they can be used to determine various error rates. - Learn how to influence, and “clean up” errors. - Also learn how to tell if it’s appropriate to let errors go. If you ever wondered how to teach skills where a dog pauses, thinks instead of “taking a shot and see if it pays off”, this webinar is all about the balance between good enough and peak performance. You can have them both.
