Trailwalking or Obedience with a Twist T-Class Fridays at 6pm April 19th - October 18th. Cost is $35 unless you receive a discount as a private lesson participant. We won't fight the weather. If it is beautiful weather for Trailwalking we will take advantage of the trails for some parallel walking exercises. If not, we will play some games to work on proofing Obedience and Polite Manners Skills in the training barn! Just let me know if you plan to attend at least 24 hours in advance. We must have 3 interested participants to run the class each Friday.

Great advice!

Great advice!

As many Americans are having more and more deliveries brought to their doors, delivery drivers are at an increased risk of dog bites.

These interactions have the potential for trouble, but with a little planning, training and preparation, dog owners can make sure these interactions are safe. Here are a few things to keep in mind if you’re expecting a delivery person to approach your house.

Great video. As he mentioned, it requires a mindshift from the handler in order to effectively address this behavior. Playing Trade up and quiet movement games like this BEFORE you make a management error is important. Then, your dog will have an established game to help you move them away from the item you don't want them to have. Simple. Quiet. Calm.

Our 1st Meet & Greet Trustbuilding Class of 2024 was a success. Our goal was to ask our dogs to sit and focus on their handler even if other people passed by and approached. Nice job everyone. Big thank you to Parry's Hardware and Big Lots of Hamilton, NY for providing a nice venue for our class!

A great read for anyone who shares their life with an energetic dog!

I used to think that with the crazies, I needed to calm them down so they would be less crazy. As the years went on I realised that for some dogs not only was this a really hard and painstakingly slow thing to achieve, it also wasn't very fair to ask of for a lot of them.

Exactly... well stated!

"So many treats."

"If my dog had that many treat, they'd get fat"

'You shouldn't have to give that dog so many treats"

"The dog is only doing it for treats"

A treat - an item out of the ordinary that gives great pleasure. But it can also mean to give care and attention (to get medical treatment kr to treat someone well).

The food you see me using with my clients in my videos are not "treats." They're reinforcers which are food. There's a difference.

We see treating ourselves or giving ourselves a treat as an indulgence, something which is limited. Maybe there's a view that if we get too many treats, we get lazy, soft and spoiled. A child who gets too many treats ruins their appetite, rots their teeth, gets spoiled and their behaviour may change for the worse because of all the "treats." Those who help themselves to treats are greedy etc.

We often so dog treats marketed the same way. They are something special for the dog. We see them called "training treats" with some implication or prejudice that they are for especially good behaviour.

But that's not what's going on here. When you are building a relationship with anyone, you may do fun things together in order to get to know them. That might include going for coffee (is that a treat), dinner, the movies. Other activities may or may not involve food. We care getting to know that person, finding out if enough of their behaviour is reinforcing to us.

Getting paid for our job is not a treat. We wouldn't do it without it. Taking satisfaction in work we've done is not a treat, it reinforces our behaviour and makes it more likely in the future.

When we start training our dogs, we are reinforcing the behaviours we want to see more of - proximity, attention, movement. We reinforce those behaviours with a piece of food (there are many other things we can use too).
We are not "giving the dog a treat," even though that might be what it looks like. We strengthen a behaviour, when it's stronger we can ask for more (when you lift weights, you get stronger, you can lift more).
