Dog Training DisrUPted - UPWARD Dogology

A listener, who is a scientist, asked a great question - "Can positive reinforcement training reach the cognitive side of the brain?" Great question. I had to think about this and am excited to share my thoughts.

We then explore Canine Enrichment exercises, their benefits, and if they reach the cognitive side of the brain.

I then use an example provided by a professor as to what CBT is and how it is like making soup!

I was recently a guest on a tv show where I provided a tip that combines R+ exercises and CBT to help integrate a rescued dog into your home. This tip got a lot of great feedback, so I thought I would share it.
