Full-day lectures on the Do As I Do method will be conducted by Fumi Higaki Do as I Do is a training method based on dog’s social cognitive skills, particularly on his imitative ability. With this technique, dogs will learn new behaviors by observing and imitating their owners. Attendees will learn how to teach dogs the “imitation rule” and how to progress through the training protocol. Fumi will explain what are the requirements they need to follow before starting the Do as I do training and why they are so important. Then she will go over the Do as I Do training protocols in detail. Dogs will first be taught to imitate a small set of familiar actions (actions already trained with traditional techniques) and will then generalize this rule. At the end of the training protocol, the owner will be able to teach new behaviors to their dogs, simply showing them what to do. These new actions will be then put under verbal cues. Application examples of Do as I Do in the AAI (Animal Assisted Intervention) programs will be introduced and discussed at the end of the seminar.
