Dog training: redirecting unwanted behaviour
Dog Trainer, Grisha Stewart, uses reward based training methods to promote the behaviour she wants to encourage but what do you do to discourage behaviour you don't want to see?
Grisha emphasises the importance of minimising any reinforcing of unwanted behaviour. She also demonstrates how you can catch the moment when the dog seems to display the intention to perform an unwanted behaviour so that you can redirect them onto something else. She warns against the use of negative reinforcement and asks the thought-provoking question: "Does the dog need to know it's done something wrong?"
