咬人的金毛尋回犬

這隻金毛外型討好,人見人愛,如果你這樣想就被她騙到了,其實她是名副其實的"殺手",咬傷所有接觸她的手!她特別討厭男士,最初主人也沒告訴我,連家人也質疑應否請一位男trainer,幸好得到這位主人的信任,我亦沒有令他們失望,由第一次狗狗見我如見仇人,到第二次見我(或陌生人)就知道有"著數",不再表現兇惡,反而表現得興奮,雖然起初仍有吠叫,但吠叫方式及聲調跟以前已經大有不同,因主人早前的功課做得好,入屋後狗狗更加表現比以前更有耐性,更輕鬆,更好玩,不再像從前的亂跳亂撲吠叫兇惡。

我教狗主如何"改變狗狗的想法",要狗狗不再討厭陌生人,換句話說就是要對陌生人產生好印象,如果每次陌生人出現就會同時出現狗狗喜歡的東西,那狗狗為何再要趕走那陌生人呢?當狗狗領悟了這規則,狗狗只會希望更多陌生人出現吧!

你真正在獎勵你的狗嗎?

喜歡星期日早上一個教育節目,內容是家長如何教導小孩子,跟教狗狗很相似,都是鼓勵做對的行為。

其中一位家長分享他的囡囡各種不同的問題,其中他覺得囡囡的學習不太主動,往往要他提點,為了鼓勵囡囡讀書得到好成績,他用了一個辦法,就是跟囡囡說如果考取好成績就送她一部新款手提電話以作獎賞。

我相信不少家長都會用這方法,因為沒有罵孩子,而且運用獎勵去加強適當行為,以為這就是正面教法。但當這位家長表示這樣做,主持及嘉賓(心理學家及精神科醫生)都不讚同,你想到原因嗎?這跟狗主誤解正向(獎勵式)訓練一樣,因為他用的是引誘或賄賂方法,不是真正的獎勵,主持向家長解釋,如果只想短暫收效,這樣做還可以,但要改變囡囡的讀書主動性就不行,最後建議他應等待囡囡成績有了進步,才把新手提電話送給她,給她一個意外驚喜,這樣才會給她更深刻印象,以後的改變不會先要討價還價後才會發生,主動性自然大了。

這正正解釋了為何狗主常常說,只要有食物在手狗狗就聽話,沒有就睬你都傻,當沒聽到。緊記不要再賄賂或引誘你的狗狗,訓練是要真正的獎勵,就是當牠完成後才給予獎賞!

《狗主回應》Emerald – Oli (2013-12-02)

Oli

My Tibetan Spaniel, Oliver “Oli”, has a very timid personality when he was 8 months old. Oli was not very receptive towards other dogs and strangers who came to visit my home. He would bark and act ferociously towards dogs which see them from over 100 metres away on the street. At times, he would also  want to attack those strangers whom come to my home, such as construction workers.

I came across the method of positive training and found Eddie online. I only had 2 sessions with Eddie and it already did wonders! Eddie made me realize that Oli was acting this way because he was afraid but not because he was fierce. Using positive training method, I was able to help Oli overcome his fears. He stopped attacking construction workers at my home. More amazingly, he now feels curious towards other dogs and tries to approach them. The biggest recent improvement of all, is that Oli made it through the HKDR Peak to Fong walk just fine. Although he is not 100% open towards other dogs, I feel like this is a huge improvement for Oli, thanks to Eddie. I hope to continue to work with Eddie and help Oli being a more sociable dog!
