Learning about modern dog training methods based on behavioural science changed the way we work with our dogs. Perhaps the most important change was in how we raise our dogs from puppies. It seems that this way of training not only teaches them manners and interesting tricks, it also teaches them about life and living!
Thanks to clicker training, you can build a relationship with your dog based on positive cooperation rather than using commands to force the dog to obey. Eric Brad shows how clicker training has benefitted his relationship with his new puppy, Rizzo.
A transcript of the main text of Adventures in Puppyhood: Teaching Rizzo Basic Life Lessons is available at the Life As A Human online magazine website. You can visit Life as a Human to find this and other articles.
Thanks for listening to Canine Nation podcasts. I hope you can spread the word and let your dog-friends know about what you’re hearing here.
