What I hope will change is that we understand more about canine cognition, how they learn and what they pay attention to and how to tap into that. Because I think classical, and especially operant conditioning is a very good tool. It is quite clear you can achieve a lot with it, but I think dogs understand a lot more, and if we understand what they understand we can make our training much more effective. And that’s where I hope it will go, that what is being done in the field of canine cognition, that we will start using that more in training dogs.

All the people he had to bite he just bit, and yes it was a ball dog, that's right. That's how I trained him. That's what he did the recall for, that's what he did everything for. I think a dog should be rewarded a lot. If you don't reward a dog, he won't work for you. He works for you because he wants to be rewarded, he needs to get something in return.
