Visit us at     Everything I train dogs to do, I do in the form of a game. We have a mantra around here that “work = play and play = work.” You can minimize the time you need for dog training by keeping this mantra in mind and noticing what your dog loves!   In the episode you'll hear:   • About Tater’s love of watermelon and being in the sun. • What my Terrier Twister would do on a chair. • How dogs do what is reinforcing and show us where the value is for them. • What Tater does going out the door and why he might not go for a morning walk. • About substitute consent and our dogs best interests. • What competing values are for us and how that applies to dogs. • How This! showed me her competing value when we are outside. • What to do about your dog’s competing values. • Why food, toys, activities, permission and our attention can all be reinforcing. • The things dogs do that make me laugh. • What Feature does at the built-in crates when it’s feeding time. • How I have rules so my dogs can have the best life ever.   Resources:   • Podcast Episode 2: Reinforcement - • Podcast Episode 94: How the Best Professional Dog Trainers Use Reinforcement - • Blog Post: TOP Say Yes Training Reminders - • Blog Post: Who’s Shaping Me? - • Podcast Episode 106: Consent In Dog Training: The Misuse, Misunderstanding And Misapplication - • Video Blog: Built In Dog Crates For Home Decor - • Podcast Episode 11: The Power of Permission in Dog Training - • Crate Games Online - • Podcast Episode 27: Do Dogs Need Rules? - • Watch this Episode of Shaped by Dog on YouTube -
