What Was That Cookie For?! When Positive Reinforcement In Dog Training Goes Wrong #256

Visit us at shapedbydog.com

 

With the growing popularity of positive reinforcement-based dog training, there's an increasing popularity of criticizing the use of positive reinforcement. And truthfully, it isn't all unfounded because there can be a huge variability in people's results when they choose not to use physical corrections or verbal intimidation in their dog training. I?m addressing the criticism with a look at 5 different scenarios where dogs get rewarded for things you don?t want, and how using the magic question ?what was that cookie for?? can fast track success and turn unwanted behaviors around.

 

In this episode you?ll hear:

 

? The growing popularity and criticism of positive reinforcement in dog training.
? What variables affect the effectiveness in dog training.
? The pivotal question that can transform your approach to dog training.
? What ?choice point? is in dog training.
? Five scenarios illustrating different reinforcement situations and their implications.
? What the 5 categories of reinforcements are and knowing what your dog loves.
? The impact of reinforcement on both the dog's behavior and the trainer's actions.
? Why negative reinforcement is the silent killer of dreams. 
? How to be intentional, clear, and purposeful when reinforcing desired behaviors.
? About asking the magic question ?what was that cookie for??.

Should We All Stop Using Non-Reward Markers In Dog Training? #251

Visit us at shapedbydog.com 

 

Non-Reward Markers have long been used in dog training, but are they really necessary? And what drives our choice to use an NRM? An NRM, sometimes called a No Reward Marker, could be a word people use to freeze a dog from making a poor choice during training or even be something like, ?ah?, ?no?, ?hey?, ?stop?. I?m covering how things have changed for me and the use of Non-Reward Markers over the years and what we can do instead.

 

In this episode you?ll hear:

 

? Why to consider the balance of compassion and ambition.
? About the impact of using non-reward markers in dog training.
? Why to use the ABC model to create clarity for dogs.
? Personal experiences with my dogs over the years. 
? Why manipulating the environment sets dogs up for shaping success.
? How making a small shift in dog training prevents frustration.
? Why to play the "Muffin Tin Game" and how it encourages dogs to offer behaviors.
? About considering experimental design and set up.

Expectations Vs Reality: Navigating The Path To Dog Training Success #250

Visit us at shapedbydog.com 

 

Recently something happened in my own dog training that I?m sharing in this episode, and it?s all about our expectations of our dogs. Along with our expectations, our beliefs and biases play a role in our relationship with our dogs. We?re all bombarded with unrealistic expectations about dogs daily, so challenging what we think with curiosity can be a fast track to dog training success. Realistic expectations will bring us closer to our dogs, and help them be less frustrated and happier.

 

In this episode you?ll hear:

 

? The role of expectations in relationships.
? About unrealistic expectations in dog training.
? How personal biases are shaped.
? My revelation during a training session with my puppy, Prophet.
? Why curiosity over disappointment is important in dog training.
? About setting up an environment for success.
? The shift from expecting perfection to embracing curiosity.
? Why we need to manage our expectations.
? About questioning our personal biases in dog training.

Redefining Expertise In Dog Training And What Counts More Than Years Of Experience #247

Visit us at shapedbydog.com 

 

What's better than 30 years of dog training experience? It?s NOT 31! I?m covering why the duration someone spends training dogs does not create expertise, going against the commonly held belief that longevity in a profession guarantees proficiency.

Get all the critical tips to maximize the next year of your dog training experience and success.

 

In this episode you?ll hear:

 

? That experience does not equate to expertise in dog training.
? Why some experts or trainers get worse with time.
? About the reasons to embrace continual growth..
? Tips to maximize the next year of your dog training experience.
? Why it's important to be deliberate and purposeful in quest for growth.
? The importance of being able to read your dog?s T.E.M.P.
? How creating a training plan is like putting together a recipe.

? How to be deliberate and purposeful in your training

Dog Myths Debunked: Separating Canine Facts From Fiction #244

Visit us at shapedbydog.com

 

There are 14 canine myths commonly accepted as truths and I?m doing some serious debunking to separate fact from fiction. For example, have you heard the myth about ?Doodles never shed?? It's a myth because it's genetics. If you breed a shedding breed to a non-shedding breed, we can't predict what we're going to get. Don?t miss this one, because I?m ?shedding? even more light on popular lore about dogs that too many people still believe. Enjoy!

 

In this episode we?re mythbusting:

 

? Old dogs can?t learn new tricks.
? Puppies outgrow naughty behavior.
? Show your dog who's the boss, alpha, pack leader.
? Begin puppy training at six months old.
? Dogs defy, grow stubborn or ignore you near tempting distractions.
? Feeding scared dogs rewards fear.
? Wagging tails means happy dogs.
? Yawning dogs are tired dogs.
? Good dogs tolerate children.
? Puppies love hugs and cuddles.
? Dogs only see in black and white.
? Dogs admit they?re wrong with guilty looks.
? Rescue dogs are damaged.
? Two puppies provide companionship for one another.

Training My New Puppy, What He Knows So Far: Susan Garrett's Plan And Puppy Schedule #243

Visit us at shapedbydog.com

 

My puppy, Prophet, turned four months old this week! At this point, the Prophet knows nothing. What!? Now, my definition of ?know? is different. Although he doesn?t ?know? much, Prophet recognizes many behaviors and several markers, and that?s the start of true understanding. I?m sharing exactly what my daily routine and puppy-training plan looks like and my top priorities for raising a confident, joyful dog.

 

In this episode you?ll hear:

 

?  What goes into raising confident, joyful puppies.
?  My definition of a dog truly knowing a behavior.
?  The difference between a puppy recognizing cues vs. knowing cues.
?  That when a dog knows the cue, they perform the behavior.
?  My top priorities when raising a puppy.
?  About teaching a dog or puppy to want what you want.
?  My goal is environmental neutrality for my puppy.
?  A day in the life of Susan Garrett and Prophet the Puppy.
?  Two reasons to not walk puppies often.
?  How I create a successful puppy training environment.
?  About conditioning, shaping and target training for puppies.
?  The importance of verbal override training for puppies.
?  Why I always take a puppy to relieve themselves on leash.

Understanding Dog Fear (Part 1): Genetics, Trauma, And Your Dog?s Well-being #236

Visit us at shapedbydog.com 

 

How to help frightened and anxious dogs is a question I receive frequently, so I?m diving into identifying and overcoming canine fears and phobias that often lead to withdrawal or reactivity. Today?s focus is on overlooked reasons dogs become fearful and what you need to know about anxiety. It?s important to recognize a dog?s fear triggers and the role we might play in unconsciously creating stress.

 

In this episode you?ll hear:

 

?  Overlooked triggers to many dogs? fears.
? Natural dog fears during certain life stages.
? The difference between alert, excited or anxious dog behavior.
? How genetics predispose some breeds to fear or confidence.
? That animals inherit generational trauma, too.
? How events, medical conditions and lack of education can create fear in dogs.
? How spaying may impact a female dog?s hormones.
? How gut health impacts animal behavior and emotions.
? The effect of EMF?s on dogs and animals.
? How dogs absorb and internalize human emotions.
? How to decode your dog?s body language.
? Why we should observe how our reactions impact our dogs.

How To Stop Puppy Biting: Avoid Mistakes With Susan Garrett's Backup Plan #234

Visit us at shapedbydog.com 

 

I?ve done several episodes on puppy biting, but my new Border Collie, Prophet, is one of the bitiest I?ve ever owned.

In this episode you?ll hear:

 

? Why puppies bite and games to get you through this phase.
? The 10 reasons puppies bite.
? How to manage your puppy biting expectations.
? Tips to build your puppy?s brain, body and connection with you.

Since I recently had a friend fly my new puppy to Canada from Switzerland in-cabin, many of you asked how I prepare my dogs for airline travel. Even if you don?t have plans to fly a puppy anytime soon, you?ll benefit from hearing how I train them to be great travelers in two phases. Moreover, there?s a lot of red tape and regulations around in-cabin flying with puppies and dogs that vary from airline to airline and country to country. I read the fine print for you and I?m sharing how to avoid expensive ? and upsetting ? airport snafus when flying with your dog.

 

In this episode you?ll hear:

 

? How to prepare puppies to fly in-cabin confidently.
? The three parts to puppy flight preparation.
? That each airline has different pet travel requirements.
? What to expect when checking your dog in at the airport.
? My in-cabin pet carrier recommendations.
? The best crate for flying dogs in cargo or the hold.

Canine Predatory Motor Sequence: Understand Your Dog's Prey Drive To Enrich Your Life Together #232

Visit us at shapedbydog.com 

 

Why do Beagles, Border Collies, Belgian Malinois, Boston Terriers (and most breeds) present different dog training challenges? It?s because their Predatory Motor Sequence aka Predation Sequence creates a behavior pattern of eight events selected for some breeds but removed from others. Recognizing which of these eight exists in your dog allows you to enrich, train, reinforce, and avoid denial of things critical to their well-being. Today I?m showing you how to spot these patterns and sharing unique tips and fun games to support or redirect some of the predator sequences inherent in your dog. Enjoy!

 

In this episode you?ll hear:

 

? The 8 patterns of a domesticated dog?s Predatory Motor Sequence.
? How to identify the Predatory Sequence traits in your own dog.
? How certain breeds like Border Collies were bred selectively for certain predatory traits and not others.
? How dogs present their predatory traits through play with toys.
? The different prey drives of many different dog breeds.
? The various ways dogs stalk that most people don?t recognize.
? Dog training games for chasing, hunting, biting, and stalking.
? That it?s better for dogs to dismember food toys than stuffed animals.
? Awesome enrichment ideas and training games to redirect or highlight your breed?s predatory instincts.

Finding Joy Amidst Frustration And Shame In Dog Training - DeCaff?s Story Part 2 #230

Visit us at shapedbydog.com 

 

In episode 229, I shared the story about finding joy with a ?mighty dog? in my life, a Jack Russell Terrier mix named DeCaff. In Part 2, I admit a painful lesson around frustration, shame and struggle between two of my Terriers; as well as the last six lessons my agility champion taught me about conditioning positive emotional responses, arousal states in dog training, seeing behavior as communication, the canine gut-brain axis, and most importantly: forgiveness of self and others.

 

In this episode you?ll hear:

 

? DeCaff?s Story, Part Two: A painful admission about my world champion agility dog.
? Lesson 1: A dog shutting down during training is feedback to you.
? About DeCaff?s slow weave pole times.
? Lesson 2: A dog?s behavior is a critique of your training plan, skills and execution.
? How I used time outs in the past.
? About DeCaff?s aggression redirection.
? Lesson 3: Never sidestep the lesson the dog is trying to share with you.
? About my a-ha moment with the ?Smack Da Baby? tug game.
? How I doubled my agility dog?s weave pole times with positive conditioning.
? Lesson 4: You can?t truly help a dog you?ve labelled or compared.
? How to acknowledge a dog?s limitations but focus on their joy and strengths.
? Lesson 5: Release guilt, shame and angst we have about our dogs.
? When DeCaff jumped my sick senior dog.
? My struggles training DeCaff after the death of my other dog, Twister.
? About forgiveness for mistakes made with your dog.
? Lesson 6: Focus on you and your dog?s improvements.
? About the lessons dogs bring to our lives.
? About the link between gut health, a dog?s reactive behavior and their neuroses.

Everyone with a dog, including professional trainers like me, encounters dog behavior problems. It might be a dog's non-existent recall, chasing things, counter surfing, being out of control, not paying attention, or, if you do sports, not listening to you in the ring. Or it could be a dog's naughty habits around home persisting. Help is at hand, and I'm sharing my strategy for success no matter what the dog training challenge.

 

In this episode you?ll hear:

 

? How to ensure you overcome dog training challenges for good.
? My approach to working through a dog?s triggers with curiosity.
? What to do when naughty behaviors reappear.
? About knowing where the reinforcement is for unwanted behaviors.
? That some behaviors are simply quirks of the dog?s personality.
? The unconscious and overt crutches we use to manage our dogs.
? That tracking your training will improve your dog?s behavior.
? What to journal about the behavior you?re fixing.
? Why we don't want to avoid our dog's triggers.

Keep The Food Bowl! Why Dogs Don?t Need 100% Hand Feeding #225

Visit us at shapedbydog.com 

 

Dog training has its fads and one you might have heard is never feeding your dog from a bowl. This trend of feeding dogs exclusively by hand can get people into trouble. I believe that dogs should not have to earn the right to get fed. Today I?m explaining why at least part of your dog?s meals should come from a bowl, alternative feeding methods to enrich your dog, and powerful ways to reinforce your dog that don?t involve food.

 

In this episode you?ll hear:

 

? Why dogs should be at least partially bowl-fed.
? Enrichment ideas for dogs using food.
? What I wrote in my book, Ruff Love.
? Why I don?t advise hand feeding dogs only.
? Why dogs need reassurance that food isn?t contingent on behavior.
? Practical reasons why dogs should learn to eat from a bowl.
? How hand feeding dogs only can backfire.
? Other ways to reinforce your dog without food.

Unleashing Fluency In Dog Training: Cracking The Canine Communication Code #224

Visit us at shapedbydog.com 

 

Before my recent episode on latency in dog training, we took a social media poll on cue response times. 62% of people thought their dogs responded too slow. So, to help, this episode covers all the elements that create fluent behavior and what?s truly behind a dog?s response time to a cue. One of the most significant elements can be what we believe to be true about dogs. We?re also looking at the difference between true fluency and a dog's good grasp of a behavior.

 

In this episode you?ll hear:

 

? Why people often mistake partial understanding of a behavior for fluency.
? What I mean by generalizing a dog?s behavior to all contexts.
? About training my ?high? Border Collie, Buzz, for agility.
? How to create enthusiasm and joy in your dog for behaviors.
? My six criteria for dog behavior fluency.
? Why instilling joy is always the first step in dog training.
? That ?will? is a function of skill and environment.
? That our beliefs are not truths but personal perceptions.
? How we download and accept information from authority figures in our lives.
? Why the beliefs and labels of others aren?t your truths.
? Why I stopped giving dogs ?time outs? over a decade ago.
? Why I think I?ve been successful at positive reinforcement dog training.
? What to do when frustration, anger, or disappointment sets in with your dog.
? That dogs aren?t mad or spiteful when acting out, they?re dysregulated.
? About fright, flight, freeze, or please reactions to stressors.
? The questions to ask yourself when toxic thoughts or emotions arise.
? Why we need to teach dogs from a place of environmental success in layers of joy.
? My steps for releasing limiting beliefs and toxic thinking.

Get Your Dog To Respond Faster: Latency In Dog Training #222

Visit us at shapedbydog.com 

 

When you cue your dog to perform a behavior, do they respond with lightning speed or a leisurely pace? The lag time between your cue and your dog?s response is called latency. When I design a training plan for my dogs, latency is built in, because I want super fast responses to cues. We?re covering how why dogs might respond slowly and what you can do to fix it.

 

In the episode you'll hear:

 

? What you need to know about latency of behavior.
? When to consider a dog?s behavior fluent.
? Why dogs develop lag times between a cue and response.
? What to consider if dogs are slow to respond.
? How to leverage arousal states for focused and fast behaviors.
? Common mistakes people make that create lag time for dogs.
? How to reduce latency with the example of a dog sitting at the door.
? Why to take the problem away from the environment.
? About using Jean Donaldson?s ?Push, Stick or Drop? to reduce latency.
? When to test the latency of a behavior in new habitats.
? That fast responses generalize well to many behaviors.

Understanding Emotional Regulation In Dogs To Create Calm #217

Visit us at shapedbydog.com 

 

Do you know how your dog or puppy self-regulates or dysregulates? Or how your dog self-soothes? Most dog owners don?t, and it could be the root of behavioral challenges around your home. Dogs show dysregulation or self-regulation much like humans. Your dog?s responses aren?t the same as choosing right from wrong but a reflection of emotional regulation. Today I?m breaking down what healthy self-regulation looks like and how to recognize and help your dog?s coping mechanisms for a happier, healthier co-existence.

 

In the episode you'll hear:

 

? What you need to know before a visiting dog arrives in your home.
? How to recognize self-regulation and dysregulation in dogs.
? The definition of canine self-regulation.
? That dogs don?t choose right from wrong.
? What dysregulation looks like in dogs.
? That resilience to stress is a byproduct of healthy self-regulation.
? That puppies or rescue dogs cannot self-regulate instantly.
? The possible signs of dysregulation puppies and dogs display.
? Factors that contribute to canine dysregulation.
? About my own puppy?s and rescue?s dysregulation.
? How environment impacts self-regulation.
? About normalizing certain conditions to help dogs.
? What ?destructive? dogs are really communicating.
? The ways puppies and dogs naturally self-regulate.
? About canine self-soothing behaviors and coping mechanisms.
? How co-regulation facilitates self-regulation for dogs.

England Banned Shock Collars, Here?s Why That Could Be Sad News #214

Visit us at shapedbydog.com 

 

England has banned using remote electric shock collars on dogs starting from February 2024. Why do I find this sad if shock collars aren?t tools I use or advocate? And why is the term ?shock collar? offensive to some who use them? I?m covering both questions, why many people will be upset with me about my thoughts on the e-collar ban and alternate solutions for people and dogs.

 

In the episode you'll hear:

 

? The pros and cons of England?s ban on e-collars.
? Why the term ?shock collar? triggers some dog trainers.
? The three groups of people who use shock collars and why.
? Why shocking dogs for ?bad? behaviors is not a solution.
? That one of the biggest pet store chains in North America stopped selling e-Collars.
? That banning one punishment device could make an even worse one popular.
? How the way we choose to train dogs relates to the stories we tell ourselves.
? The ways people try to manage their dog?s behavior and justifications for e-Collar use.
? My curiosity as to why some elite dog sports competitors are still using shock collars.
? How the positive reinforcement dog training community can advocate through education.
