There are times when you would like to teach a new cue for a particular behavior. Maybe you want to add a verbal cue to a hand signal or vice versa. Transferring cues in dog training really is not that difficult to do. I explain in this post. http://goo.gl/OyRrrN

Do puppies grow out of their problem behaviors? Well, that depends. I answer that in this blog post: http://goo.gl/2WyWRV

I love that this blog gives me a chance to talk about people in my life who have incredible value. Michele Carey is one. I know that in the opportunities I have had to work with her – or be in the same room with her – that she has had a magical way of uplifting and inspiring me. We had lunch the other day. As she spoke of her job at the The Greater Cincinnati Foundation and her new side venture, selling jewelry for good causes, passion swept over her face. She is also a new board member of Cincinnati Public Radio (91.7 WVXU Cincinnati). She also just ended a very long commitment as a trustee of the Cincinnati Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired. I am glad to have Michele in my part of the world.

I like to use games to teach behaviors and skills for a number of reasons: It puts you as trainer in a positive mindset which leads to a fun learning environment for your student; within the context of a game you can work on strengthening so many different behaviors; games are relationship builders. Here is one idea for a game: http://goo.gl/irBK9r

You may know of Greg Landsman for his unrelenting dedication to helping young people succeed. I met him when he was leading The Strive Partnership. Today he leads two other very significant education initiatives: the Cincinnati Preschool Promise, an effort to provide every child with two years of quality preschool, and the Every Child Capital philanthropic venture fund, which invests in high impact and scalable interventions for children. Where does his inspiration come from? What drives him? Please learn more in this interview: http://goo.gl/DZs9mO #Cincinnati #GoodThingsCincy +Greg Landsman

How well does your pet REALLY know that behavior? I talk about proofing and fluency in this post.

Does your dog know how to hand target? Or any targeting? It is a fun foundational skill that can help teach other behaviors.Here is a link to steps for teaching it (with a video of a child practicing): http://goo.gl/L535MR

+Jami Edelheit +TEDx is truly one of Cincinnati's great treasures. Jami is founder and director of TEDxCincinnati, and is like a magnet, attracting others to dream, connect, and do. She is a leader and change maker who makes things happen in big ways...her children are too. It is no wonder the TEDxCincinnati events have sold out. AND there is SO much more to Jami. Please learn more about her in my interview...including where HER inspiration comes from. http://goo.gl/tvOOWw #TEDxCincinnati #Cincinnati +TEDxCincinnati #GoodThingsCincy
