Rewards In Dog Training
Positive reinforcers can be anything that the dog finds
rewarding - special food treats, the chance to play with
a tug toy, social interaction with other dogs, or the owner's
attention. The more rewarding a dog finds a particular reinforcer,
the more work he will be prepared to do in order to obtain
the reinforcer. Just being happy about a dog's accomplishment
is a reward to them.
Some dog trainers for example suggest using treats that
are particularly favoured by your pooch. Your dog or puppy
may particularly enjoy liver treats or cheese. However,
always make sure that the treat that you use as a positive
reinforcer is healthy and will not damage your dog or puppy's
Some trainers go through a process of teaching a puppy
to strongly desire a particular toy, in order to make the
toy a more powerful positive reinforcer for good behaviour.
This process is called "building prey drive",
and is commonly used in the training of Narcotics Detection
and Police Service dogs. The goal is to produce a dog who
will work independently for long periods of time, in the
hopes of earning access to its special toy reward.
Correction are only effective when paired with teaching
the dog desired behaviors, but tend to be ineffective without
teaching the dog the proper ways to avoid the correction
and achieve reward. Corrections should only be administered
as appropriate for the dog's personality, age, experience
and physical and emotional condition. Some dogs may show
signs of fear or anxiety with harsh verbal corrections.
Other dogs may ignore a verbal reprimand. Some dogs develop
an aversion or fear of water, when water is sprayed at them
as an aversive.
