February Focus on Behaviors Bonus!

Well, it hasn't officially ended, but it's upon us.  I've decided to do the very last post on avoiding unconscious or self reinforcing of the wrong behaviors, in a video based format.  However, I won't be able to record the video in Tuesday evening, so it won't get posted here until Wednesday morning!  This means I'll be wrapping up my February Theme just a bit late.

In the meantime, I want to let you in on one of my best kept secret new resources!  Every Tuesday night, I'm partnering with Cindy Campbell Dog Training to host a Working Paws: Trainer Talk which is open to trainers of all levels.  It doesn't matter if you're training your first dog or have had dogs for years, you're invited to join in the conversations on Tuesday nights or watch the recap on my YouTube Channel!

Trainer Talk 1: Do Words Matter?

Trainer Talk 2: Cooperative Care

And Trainer Talk 3 will be on March 1st and go over Reinforcement Mistakes!  That will be posted to in this blog and linked to end the February Theme: Focus on Behaviors page.  All the resources from the month of February will remain available for you to review any time with easy access from the right column.

And I want to leave you with one more bonus video from Susan Garrett: Dogs That Episode # 42

"Behavior Chains: Are You Teaching Your Dog to be Bad to be Good?"

I hope you've enjoyed the February Theme: Focus on Behaviors!  If you have, please leave me a comment telling me what you enjoyed most.
