Follow Blush’s Litter (9) – Ramps – 10 wks 7/20/19
Updated: Aug 30, 2019
In this video it is clear to see that the puppies have become what I lovingly refer to as “novel stimulus junkies.” This means we have done our job well! The pups perceive new things as both fun and exciting; they are confident and they absolutely know how to get us to pay them.
Will we always need clickers? No! Will we always need treats? No!
The use of a clicker and treats is a fast and effective way to teach a new behavior. They are also valuable in supporting (reinforcing) a behavior already learned but are by no means the only way! My voice in encouragement and cuddle time count as reinforcement as do environmental reinforcers such as being allowed into a new area the pups want to explore.
The video below is our full five minute training session.
Stay tuned for the next big changes.....
