You obviously aren't using the right words when praising.

But wait, I thought the words didn't matter, that it was just the tone of voice that achieved miraculous results?

No, it is all in the positioning of your little toe in relation to your belly button lint.

Damnit! My little toes have been broken and my belly button doesn't collect lint normally due to multiple laparoscopies. No wonder I haven't been able to get Jerry's techniques to work.

It's all done with mirrors. What's a Wizard without his mirror? Wait! Do you suppose he's confused his monitor screen for a mirror?

Go to the local university with a 24 of beer, and say that it is free to the first person that gives you a thimble-full of belly-button fuzz. Once you have it collected, grab the duct-tape and tape the lint in the belly button. As for the broken toes, I think that can be corrected by crossing your eyes when you use his techniques.

It's possible, but I'd imagine that his mirrors are all broken, for obvious reasons.

Um, thanks!

Jack, you would have loved a seminar I was at recently where the limitations of clicker training were discussed. Lori ... any behavior where the goal is handler attention, the clicker redirects attention to the treat rather than the handler. Bingo.

Very interesting! It's exactly what Jerry has been saying all along when speaking of the disadvantages of clicker training, but hey, he's the crazy one, right?

Ronna: Well, old methods die hard Emotion: smile Thank doG. It's ... a reinforcement of the behavior for a dominant aggressive dog.

Are there any Jerry fans reading this (Lucy?)? See how effective it is to praise and reward undesired behavior?

Wonders in this place never cease: here is Lynn K. validating what Jerry keeps saying and you all keep mocking him. Jerry says that offering food bribes to an aggressive dog makes him more aggressive, remember?
As about praise, where in Lynn's post do you see that anybody even tried to praise the dog? And how do you know that it wouldn't have worked, if nobody tried it, at any time?

Just to point out, in this thread (except for the first post I made), I wasn't mocking Jerry, I was mocking you.
