Abstract: Social learning in dog training: The effectiveness of the Do as I do method compared to shaping/clicker training (No replies)
Our results show that the Do as I do method is more effective than shaping/clicker training to teach dogs object-related actions within a relatively short time and suggest that this method might be also applied for training body-movements. Importantly, the use of social learning enhances dogs’ memory and generalisation of the learned action and its verbal cue.
