Oh, how I wish there were classes available near me! Would be wonderful for socialization around other dogs. Great graphic!
Those stats were higher than I thought they would be! We've always taken our pups to training classes.Sam
This is amazing Elka! I love the stats. Infographics are more interesting and easier to read than plain text. Thanks for sharing it with us.Training Chooey was one of the best things I've ever done.Huggies and Cheese,Haopee
99.5% of owners think that rewarding good behavior is most effective when training? Why are there so many, then, who refuse to do this? How strange.
I know Gracie isn't the only dog who 'air sits' - the bum never hits the ground when she sits, she hovers with it slightly off the ground (I hear other Bull Terriers have this habit too....)
Love these graphics. My ex-husband (long ago) once asked, after 5 horse-back riding lessons (hunter/jumper/dressage), why I was still going; didn't I know how to ride? I looked at him astounded (I say this was the beginning of the end, but it was wrong from the start). I told him world class athletes, ballerinas, and riders attend classes all their lives. A local dog trainer has begun a Saturday morning dog walk for socialization and training. Plan to get as many of my rescue dogs to it as possible, esp. as so many now are young and needing focus for their energy. Thanks again.
I love that infographic it's super cool!! :)I agree about the sit command, it's the first one my Mum taught me, the one I do the most and the one I'm best at, maybe that's because it's the one that's required at treat time?! Tee HeeI hope you're having a fun day, Your pal Snoopy :)
Positive reinforcement allows everyone in the family to get involved in training the dog. For instance, it may be dangerous to allow your child to use some methods of dog training, such as leash corrections and other forms of punishment. With positive reinforcement, however, you can hand your child a handful of dog treats. Dog Training Los Angeles
