The Importance of the Pause

The Pause with a capital P is a simple but highly effective "tool" in all learning processes.  When we pause, we give the animal the chance to process and assimilate the recent experience in order to learn from it.  Sometimes we will find that after the pause a task which previously seemed impossible will simply [...]

Balance & Relationship

Of course we can compel animals to (apparently) extinguish undesirable behaviours, but is this really the case? Normally what happens is that the behaviour is covered over and hidden: it becomes less visible. because the consequences for the animal if it does not comply may be more than disagreeable - even violent.
