Tutorial coming soon… Using clicker training, and without using positive punishment, you can teach dogs reliable complex behaviors like teaching a default “don’t take a step off the grassy area unless released”. Splash is demoing how she generalizes don’t step off the grass in two locations where I have never trained her to do it. I only trained her in front of my house, and another location, but as you can see she generalized it to the canyon area near the park because it doesnt have ‘grass’ (or at least that is what I think). The day that I film this I actually WANTED her to go and get the frisbee for me when I did a crappy throw, but she would not leave the grass, and I had to go and walk my lazy self down there in the bushes to get the frisbee. I was very impressed with her generalization skills so I picked up the camera and filmed a “fake” bad throw. However, with most dogs you would have to go to a few locations to train, before they would generalize it to all locations.
