Re: Acceptable pressure?

Of course that's the idea Sheila but if you are starting from a position of her being stressed at leaving her buddy then you will be starting with an uphill battle for calmness and trust- why not start with her being comfortable in her skin and build the relationship from there? The chemicals that a...

Re: Acceptable pressure?

I prefer to try to ignore the unwanted behaviour and praise (reinforce) the good stuff- which is basically how clicker works. I think I prefer this method because it's how I like to learn as a human. Yes I do get to a point of understanding what is required when someone 'gets after' me but I much pr...

Re: Acceptable pressure?

I would always use +ve R in the form of clicker because a light escalation of pressure didn't really work. Bearing in mind how they can feel the tiniest fly landing I think any force will just be asking the same question louder; the solution being to work out why she stopped and that's hard without ...
