Positive Reinforcement (and cheese) to the Rescuecw

Tue, 15 Nov 2011 21:51:05 +0000

I was driving home yesterday when I spied a dog running loose along the busy road at the entrance of my neighborhood. Her black muzzle and smooth fawn colored coat created a perfect camouflage amongst the roadside autumn leaves.  In my rear view mirror I saw a line of cars approaching. I immediately pulled over, […](image)

Life Under Constructioncw

You know when you visit a new website and click a link or placeholder and see “Under construction”? I feel like I need to slap a sticky tab with that message on my forehead for all to see. My life is undergoing a major change that must be lumped into the category of ‘under construction.’ […](image)

Attraction in Action!cw

Mon, 18 Jul 2011 16:48:19 +0000

I love this video by Emily Larlham showing the power of teaching a dog the touch cue. This is one of the very first behaviors I teach any horse I work with. It creates the ultimate environment of attraction where the animal moves towards something that feels good, rather than away from something that feels […](image)

I was recently interviewed by Regis and Kelly. Just kidding. Even better!  I was interviewed by the dynamic duo of Anna Twinney and Vincent Mancarella for a podcast on their fabulous website Reach Out to Horses. What a blast I had!  Anna, with her hypnotic British accent, and Vin, his witty and warm sense of […](image)

Progressive Reinforcement and Reciprocitycw

Tue, 15 Feb 2011 16:38:11 +0000

You can see I’ve added the Progressive Reinforcement Manifesto Logo to my blog in support of Emily Larlham’s ( solution to clarify and create a new term for what it really means to train ethically.

If you’re feeling at all discouraged, this music video is guaranteed to warm your heart and cause you to hug the nearest being with a heartbeat. In my humble opinion, it clearly shows the awesome power of positive reinforcement (force-free, pressure-free, creating an atmosphere where folks can feel good way of relating) in a world […](image)

Hot Topiccw

This is gonna be a biggie. Fast on the heels of my research regarding the classification of horses as livestock vs companion animals, I find this statement from Nevzorov Haute Ecole School that horseback riding– anytime spent on the back of the horse, is no longer admissible.

Remember playing pinball, the coin-operated arcade game? This is a game where the player attempts to score points by manipulating (whacking) one or more metal balls on a play field inside the pinball machine. As I was contemplating the current popular trends in horse training, I couldn’t help but note the similarities between the game […](image)
