Training Tales - Dewey
If you remember, Dewey was highly reactive to the mere sight of the vacuum cleaner (see it here). We have been using food during the desensitization and counter-conditioning (DS/CC) process, but today we decided to try something that he absolutely loves - his Frisbee! As you can see in the video below, after just our second session of DS/CC, this time using the Frisbee as the reinforcer, he is sitting right next to the vacuum without any overreaction!
