Sample text

If there is no motivation, no change or learning will occur. There are two main types of motivation: positive and negative. With positive motivation, the dog works to get things the dog likes. Examples of positive motivation include: ◆ Walks ◆ Attention 26 How Your Dog Learns ◆ Petting ◆ Rubs ◆ Playing with other dogs ◆ Food treats ◆ Playing with toys ◆ Getting to sniff ◆ Car rides ◆ Going outside ◆ Access to a favorite resting place ◆ Scratches Here’s an example of how positive motivation is used in training: Shred, a six-month-old American Eskimo Dog, runs to her owner and sits when she first greets him.

Is punishment cruel? It depends on what the punishment is. For example, if Shred jumps up on her owner and her owner responds by 29 ABC Practical Guide to Dog Training striking Shred with a stick the instant Shred jumps, I would say without question this punishment is cruel. Why? Because such a reaction runs a very real risk of physically harming Shred. What’s more, because this punishment is likely to be very painful, a whole host of other problems may manifest themselves as a result. For instance, Shred might become afraid any time her owner holds a similar object.

What’s more, because this punishment is likely to be very painful, a whole host of other problems may manifest themselves as a result. For instance, Shred might become afraid any time her owner holds a similar object. This fear might become generalized to all people holding objects. Shred might, in her fear, become aggressive. Shred might be injured. Obviously, no knowledgeable, enlightened trainer would recommend such a method. If any of you encounter a trainer who does, steer clear of that trainer.
