Weekly Update: Do As I Do DVD

Dear Dogwise Customer,

We have been in business long enough to witness the rise of many new methods of training dogs, however only a few them have been truly revolutionary. We think that there is a good chance that Claudia Fugazza's Do As I Do training method based on social learning may join the ranks of those that will open the eyes of trainers to a new, effective and fun way of training dogs. You all know that there are a number of methods of training a dog new behaviors based on both classical and operant conditioning. What you may not know is that recent research shows that dogs can also learn by observing and imitation, a process called social learning. Puppies who are able to observe older dogs doing detection work, for example, pick up those skills quicker than those who were not exposed to that activity. And what is most interesting is that dogs, because of the domestication process and the many ways in which they are dependent upon humans, also are careful observers of their human companions and can learn by watching them. Claudia's breakthrough is to use a verbal cue - "Do It" - along with modeling the desired behavior for the dog, for example picking up a toy and dropping it in a basket to show the dog what to do. Starting with behaviors the dog already knows, the "Do It" cue eventually is generalized to new behaviors so that the dog learns that "Do It" means "Do As I Do."

Of course it will be you trainers and dog enthusiasts who will be the ultimate judges of this new method. We think that Claudia's work will not only help you train new behaviors, but because you are interacting with your dog in a new way, many of you will find it both fun and a way to keep your training fresh and exciting for your dogs. At this time, Claudia's work is only available in DVD form based on a two day seminar that she recently held in Boise, Idaho. The DVD is over eight hours long and covers both the the oretical basis of social learning and how the Do As I Do method is done in practice. Maybe we all get lucky and some day we will see a book from Claudia...

You fans of Ebooks should keep checking our always growing selection. We sell Ebook versions of the books we publish, of course, but are always looking for other titles to add as they become available to us. Super Sniffer Drill Book by Debby Kay, Lend Me an Ear by Martha Hoffman and Living with Kids and Dogs by Colleen Pelar are three of our newest Ebooks and more are added almost every week.


Newest books & products:

  • The Science of Consequences: How They Affect Genes, Change the Brain, and Impact Our World by Susan M. Schneider. While it's easy enough to see that consequences are important, few have heard there's a science of consequences, with principles that affect us every day and applications everywhere—at home, at work, at school. Despite their variety, consequences appear to follow a common set of scientific principles and share some similar effects in the brain (such as the so-called pleasure centers).
  • Canine Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation by M. Christine Zink & Janet B. Van Dyke. Encompassing basic science and integrated veterinary and physical therapy approaches, Canine Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation is a complete resource for veterinarians, physical therapists, veterinary technicians and anyone interested in working with canine athletes or in offering rehabilitation therapy in their practice.
  • Dogwise Bag Dogwise now has our very own tote that you can purchase and help out a good cause! This Metro Shopper Tote bag features a front pocket for ease of access. Pack this reusable enviro-shopper when you're on your way to the grocery store or training class. 100% of sales go to Puppies Behind Bars program.
