How to Put an End to Counter-Surfing

Wed, 03 Dec 2014 17:00:00 +0000

Many dog owners complain that their dogs steal food from kitchen counters or even the dinner table. A new term was even coined to describe this behavior: counter-surfing. If you're tired of losing your dinner to a sneaky pooch every time you turn your back, here's what you can do about it.

Loose-Leash Walking: Part One

Thu, 03 Apr 2014 20:59:11 +0000

Age-old issue

Walking is a natural behavior for dogs, so what is the big deal about teaching them to walk nicely on a leash? It shouldn’t be that hard, should it?

Yet dog trainers all over the world always have clients with this problem (almost single-handedly guaranteeing the trainers’ job security!). Leash-pulling is a problem that even some of the best trainers are unable to solve for their clients, despite the latest and greatest “no-pull” equipment that offers a helping hand.

A Raven’s Tale: Cues that Reduce Stress

Tue, 01 Oct 2013 14:00:00 +0000

A note from Karen Pryor:

Sherri Lippman was an early adopter of clicker training. She is co-author and co-star, with Virginia Broitman, of the award-winning clicker training video, The How of Bow Wow! Sherri has been a presenter at ClickerExpo and at APDT.

While working in California at a wildlife rehabilitation center with a public display of educational animals, one of the challenges Sherri took on was the training of a long-term resident, a crippled raven that was fearful and unapproachable. The following account is, in my opinion, a dazzling example of ingenious behavioral management. Sherri taught the bird to recognize cues for necessary upcoming events, negative (netting the raven for veterinary care), harmless (cleaning and feeding), and positive (training). More to the point, she taught the staff and the many volunteers to present the cues reliably. Read on to see what happened.

Transports—The Parts in the Middle Make All the Difference!

Mon, 01 Jul 2013 18:32:45 +0000

For many years, we have preached about the importance of training according to Good Agility Practices. What that means is making sure that training is permeated by focus and intensity, and that your handling system is followed both during and in between exercises. This philosophy of training is not only true for agility training, but provides benefits for all kinds of training.

How I Cleaned Up My Cues: Cues as Reinforcers in Agility

Fri, 01 Mar 2013 15:00:00 +0000

As a newcomer to the sport of dog agility, I couldn't wait to train my dog, Jessie, to perform all the obstacles. Clicker in hand, I jumped in with great enthusiasm. Jessie learned to perform jumps and tunnels in no time, and the contact obstacles (A-frame, dog walk, and teeter) came along quickly. We were attending weekly classes, and also doing some practice sessions on our own. Soon we began running short "courses," or series of obstacles.

A Holiday Gift: Teach Your Cat to Come When Called—Without Saying a Word

Sat, 01 Dec 2012 14:00:00 +0000

We had recently moved into our new house, taking with us one young retriever and two cats, Chloe and Mia. It was a quiet neighborhood, with little access to native wildlife, except for a booming field mouse population. We decided that the cats could stay outside during the day, so long as they came in at night. We couldn't decide on a suitable location for a cat door, and, truth be told, we had more pressing things to spend the money on.
