Dog Training Tip:

When you are trying to stop your pet’s unwanted behavior, do you ‘try’ to ignore it or ignore it ‘most of the time’? Whenever I am meeting with a client and hear those words, right away I know that is a good indicator of why that behavior has become so resilient. Intermittent reinforcement is when you ‘sometimes’ give an animal a valued outcome for that behavior…and it builds very strong behaviors. That is why ignoring alone just does not work ‘most of the time’. Learn about another strategy in my blog post: http://goo.gl/7H2C1U
