[Subject] Animal Profile

[Tags |Tally]

[This is my 8 y.o. BC Tally. She is laid back for a BC, loves her flying squirrel, likes to flip papillons when they get annoying, the usual. I don't have her in classes yet, due to a reactive habit of herding small dogs in working situation (we work on attention - a lot!)]

Behaviors Under Stimulus Control
· [text]

Here include a list of behaviors your animal knows that are already under Stimulus control. Karen Pryor provides a good list and description of how to determine if a behavior is truly under stimulus control.
1. The behavior always occurs immediately upon presentation of the conditioned stimulus (the dog waves when told to)
2. The behavior never occurs in the absence of the stimulus (during practice, the dog never waves spontaneously).
3. The behavior never occurs in response to some other stimulus (the dog does not sit when you say wave)
4. No other behavior occurs in response to this stimulus (the dog does not wave when you say sit)

Behaviors under Successive Approximation

Here list a list of the behaviors you are still shaping. Do not list behaviors here that are not 100% reliable, this list will most likely be much longer than your SC list! If your dog has a good stay but will still break it occasionally, it belongs here!

Here list your daily or weekly training routine, if you don't have one, make one! Training should for the most part be regular and consistent. Also track inevitable inconsistencies that may help you put your thumb on behavioral problems.

And if you are interested, here is a good template for session logs. Included are small graphic rating paws that I use, and you are welcome to use them if you want! However, the use of the rating paws or the template itself is certainly not required.

[Taz] Animal Profile

[Tags | Taz]

[Hi- This is a fantastic tool! I will be behind in posting just a bit - I have a touch of pneumonia, so that is impacting the training, but hopefully will be back on my feet as soon as possible! With Taz, I work Sue Ailsby's Training Levels, agility, freestyle, obedience and rally.]

KEYSA (kay-suh, like quesa)



Species:
Carolina Wild Swamp Dog
Breed: Dixie Dingo
Birth Date: June 11, 2001

Behaviors Under Stimulus Control
- Sit
- Stay/Come (command sit, command stay, walk away, place treat on floor, stand up straight, say "ok" or "come" for her to come)
- Lay Down
- Down (Version of "off", I'm trying to break the habit of saying down and using off instead)
- Up (begging position)
- Shake (left paw only)


Behaviors under Successive Approximation
- Laying down on her thigh, rather than in upright position, and without putting hand all the way to the ground
- Crawl, she will only do trick if lead by a treat
- Heel (ah, the love of gentle leader ♥ xD)
- Sit/Stay at crosswalks

Training Schedule
To be quite honest, I don't have a specific training schedule. It's a very random event and I constantly have stashes of dog treats in the house for the random few minutes I stop to treat my dog to a bit of educational fun. I've been self-training her with apparently all the wrong words and movements since the day I got her a few years back, but to say the least she was a stray before I picked her up and didn't even know the name the kennel gave her, nor not a single word of training. I try to bring her in at least once a week into Petsmart to interact with walking around other dogs, and do tricks in the training center under what would be a stressful area for her. She's learned to leave all other animals that enter the house alone, which is a heavy step into leaving other dogs alone in an aggressive way.
