'Not only is punishment risky, but it also fails to teach the dog an acceptable alternate behaviour. The dog does not learn what to do the next time he is in the same situation. He only learns to fear the situation.' Emma Parsons, Click to Calm p73

(Late) Tricky T-Day: Turkey.



Late Tricky T-day, but here's Lola's brand new impression of a turkey. :)

Awesome! DId you shape that, or did she offer it?

It was pretty much a combination of luring and shaping!

She never really does anything similar to it, so I couldn't capture it, and I had no idea how to entirely shape it. The trick still isn't perfect, but she's better now than when I made the video a few days ago. :)

Oh my gosh! That's the cutest thing!! She gets down pretty quick -- mommy wishes I would respond as quick! ;)

Woofs & hugs <3,
