Dog Training DisrUPted - UPWARD Dogology
by Billie Groom
4M ago
In this episode, I read my scientific paper from my PhD course (Cognition, Emotion to Improve Animal Welfare - Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences).  The aim of this paper is to highlight the connection between cognitive processes, affected states (primarily in relation to the guardian-canine bond), and behavior to explore the effects of these factors on the welfare of domestic dogs. I begin by presenting the proven benefits, as well as the limitations, of enrichment activities and training programs. I discuss the importance of stimulating cognitive functions and establishing the ..read more

Dog Training DisrUPted - UPWARD Dogology
by Billie Groom

Dog behaviors associated with aggression and anxiety are caused by many factors, of which cognitive dissonance is rarely discussed, yet has a profound impact, in particular with adolescent and adult dogs, while, perhaps surprisingly, upbringing is not a differentiating factor. This episode covers what it is, common signs/behaviors including examples, what NOT to do - and most importantly, why, and why CCBT is so effective in addressing behaviors stemming from cognitive dissonance. As always, I appreciate your support, questions, feedback. Please feel free to share to help other professionals ..read more

Dog Training DisrUPted - UPWARD Dogology
by Billie Groom
1y ago
Leash walks can be frustrating when dogs are pulling, putting on the brakes, or  lolly-gagging.  Should you be expected to continuously turn around, or simply allow your dog to sniff everything? Should you be expected to have decompression walks that are really only decompressing for your dog? In this ep I talk about common recommendations, from continuously turning around, standing still, to allowing your dog to sniff and decide the direction (is this a technique?).  I talk about different apparatuses designed to prevent pulling, and discuss some pros and cons of some popular ..read more

Habits, Cues, Triggers - How do they effect behavior in humans and dogs?
Dog Training DisrUPted - UPWARD Dogology
by Billie Groom
2y ago
Does your dog run to the door when you pick up your car keys? Or run to the door with the sound of your partner's car pulling? Or jump off the couch when you click off the tv? These are triggers that create habits - good habits!  But what about habits our dogs have that are not what we perceive as "good" or "wanted".  These habits lead to unwanted behavior, but mainstream dog training addresses these as "good vs bad behavior", using conditioning methods to change them, which can often fail. Canine CBT views all behaviors as driven by emotional intelligence and a self-perceived need ..read more
