WHY CAN'T WE BE FRIENDS? DOG AND CAT INTRODUCTIONS
LAURA MONACO TORELLI
Introducing cats and dogs doesn’t need to involve the proverbial problems with the support of careful management and training. In this video, Laura Monaco Torelli demonstrates reinforcement and training strategies that set both species up for success including working through a physical barrier and using stationing techniques. Vito, the Rhodesian Ridgeback, is earning reinforcement for remaining settled in the down position in response to the “relax” cue and Topolina is earning reinforcement on her station as well. A deep reinforcement history will help both animals form positive associations with one another.
