I found this video on Youtube and was absolutely amazed by how well trained this dog was, and the tricks he could do. I think this is a good example of what we just learned about this recent week in lecture, and the process of learning. I did a little background research and did find that most all animals trainers use the classic Pavlov's Conditioning Theory. Even though we had been shown evidence that the theory worked, it was very minor things like salivating at the sound of a tick, or a mouse pushing down a latch. But we had not been shown anything like this video of the dog, and I personally didn't think that this theory could do that much in showing a dog how to do all these tricks. And as I read on about the process of training cats and dogs, they all went through the same series as our book shows as well. I think it's just so cool to know that such simple tasks can create such amazing tricks! I hope to one day be able to train a dog like this!
Sorry was unsure of how to put the video up but here is the link! Enjoy
