Less physical control and more freedom = a better behaved dog.

When we stop physically controlling our dogs and telling them what do do, they now have more freedom to offer behaviours and we can now reinforce the ones we like so that they reoccur.

  1. Hi, I’m from Vancouver Island, British Columbia. My neighbour is from Glasgow!

    I just finished watching the dog aggressive Great Dane video. I was confused on the timing of the clicker. It looked to me that when the Dane looked at another dog, it was marked with a click. Isn’t that re-enforcing the Dane to look at other dogs? Mind you, he wasn’t lunging or barking so maybe his nice behaviour was being rewarded.

    Thanks,

    Kelli
