That such kontrobuslovlivaniye?

Kontrobuslovlivaniye – the word which awfully sounds, but actually in it is not present anything terrible. Kontrobuslovlivaniye in training and correction of behavior of dogs is a change of emotional reaction of an animal to this or that irritant.

If to speak absolutely simply, it when we teach a dog that terrible things in her representation – not such and terrible, and in places even pleasant.

For example, the dog is afraid of strangers and barks at them. We teach her to the fact that presence of strangers promises to our pet the sea of pleasure. The dog is afraid of the nail clipper? We teach her to the fact that this tool in our hands – a harbinger of a huge amount of goodies.

How to apply a kontrobuslovlivaniye in training of dogs?

The kontrobuslovlivaniye basis in training of dogs was formed by experiments of the famous scientist Ivan Pavlov on formation of a conditioned reflex. In fact, we form a new conditioned reflex in response to a frightening or unpleasant irritant.

First of all it is necessary to find what will be a worthy reinforcement for a dog. Most often as a reinforcement acts loved (really favourite!) delicacy seldom the pet gets which in usual life. For example, small pieces of cheese. Delicacy will be the main tool.

Further work is based that show to a dog an irritant (what frightens her or disturbs) at that distance when the dog already sees an object, but still remains quiet. And then give it delicacy. Every time when the dog sees an irritant, she is given yum-yum. And gradually reduce distance and increase intensity of an irritant.

If it is correct to
to do everything, then at a dog the association will be created: the irritant = is a lot of tasty and pleasant. And the dog will rejoice to the nail clipper of which she terribly was afraid earlier.
