My dogs (mostly beagle) are very food-driven while others are not. How can these tests apply universally when food is used as the stimuli?
For training, my dogs respond to nothing but food. They NEVER play with toys so toy rewards are not an option. Yet other dogs do not respond to food as a reward and have to be rewarded in other ways during training. How can these games, which use food as the stimulus, apply to all dogs, whether they are food-driven or not?1 vote
My 5 yr old Havanese who spent her first 3 years in a puppy mill, walks backwards through doorways and across hardwood floors. She did this consistently in our last house, and after a resent move to a home with carpet instead of hardwood, she seems to have stopped. But a couple days ago, I saw her backing up to the steps on our back porch, which is concrete. Any ideas on this behavior?1 vote
