061: Crossover Effects in K9 Training

In this episode, Jerry Bradshaw discuss:

  • Crossover effects for puppies and police dog training.
  • Balancing giving attention to the dog with creating independence.
  • Distance work versus safety-seeking and teaching independence.
  • Finding a balance between go and stop, with more bias toward the action of go.

Key Takeaways:

  • The dog should get attention when it works and does something productive, not just because it is seeking attention.
  • Bias to attention not action can form through too much obedience training.
  • Value distance work don’t just train your dog to safety seek.
  • Without balance, you will create unintended crossover effects. Balance is the key.
