Weekly Update: Do As I Do by Claudia Fugazza

Dear Dogwise Customer,

Dogwise Publishing is very pleased to announce the release of Do As I Do - Using Social Learning to Train Dogs by Claudia Fugazza containing both a book and instructional DVD. Some of you may know about Claudia's ground-breaking work with her European colleagues on the subject of social learning in dogs. Their research suggests that dogs can engage in social learning including the ability to observe and imitate not only other dogs but the actions of people - and then imitate them to learn behaviors. Claudia became interested in this when she discovered that one of her dogs had learned to turn on a water faucet at night by watching her do it and then going back and turning it on herself later in the evening to get a drink. This led over time to the development of the Do As I Do training protocol which is described in detail in the book and shown on the DVD. The Do As I Do technique is particularly useful in working with service dogs and canine athletes who must masters skills such as ringing a bell, jumping over a hurdle, spinning and dozens more. But more than that, training on the basis of social learning is fun for both the trainer and dog as by definition it involves close observation and understanding between dog and trainer as you begin with known behaviors and then move on to new behaviors. The DVD is designed to be used along with the book so you can more clearly see exactly what the protocol involves. Since very few of you speak Italian, the DVD comes with English subtitles! We think you will enjoy this technique and can add it to your training toolbox with both your own dogs and those of your clients.

Our product feature of the week is the very popular Woofstick. The Woofstick was designed to give dogs a full workout in just a few minutes as they try to catch the attached toy. It is constructed of lightweight, high-quality aluminum and is fully collapsible for ease of transport and storage. It comes complete with a sturdy nylon shoulder carrying case, a soft and plush “bone” toy for use with the Woofstick, and a foldable outdoor water bowl to keep your dog properly hydrated. The adjustable 10-foot cord that attaches to the toy winds onto a storage reel at the base of the Woofstick. The cord can be adjusted for length while you play, optimizing the involvement between you and your dog.


Newest books & products:

  • Controlled Aggression: In Theory & Practice by Jerry Bradshaw. K9 Training manual for professional police and protection trainers. This book covers K9 selection, drive development, human focused aggression, out on command redirects and call offs. Appendices cover European dog sports and attentive heeling for police K9 and sport competition.
  • Secrets of A Dog Trainer: Positive Problem Solving for A Well-Behaved Dog by Victoria Schade. Approaching common dog training problems from a trainer's point of view, Schade helps readers understand how minor problems can become major ones if treated incorrectly. She illustrates each behavioral challenge with a case study, then provides several '“choose-your-own-ending”' possibilities as to how the behavior might develop without proper intervention. She then shares the positive training alternatives.
  • Puppy Socialization: An Insider's Guide to Dog Behavioral Fitness by Caryl Wolff. Puppy owners have previously been told to wait until puppy shots were completed before taking them outside – which is equivalent to keeping a child housebound until he is 12 years old! “Puppy Socialization – An Insider’s Guide to Dog Behavioral Fitness” guides you and your puppy through the socialization process safely and effectively. Endorsed by trainers, owners, and veterinarians, this book gives tips to breeders, owners, and rescue groups on how to socialize puppies safely and effectively.
