Do As I Do

by Claudia Fugazza

This book comes with a free DVD and is a great introduction to the theory behind, and the practical training of, the method Do As I Do.

"Social learning" means acquiring new behaviours from the observation of others. Recent studies revealed the social cognitive abilities of dogs and demonstrated that they are surprisingly predisposed to learn socially from humans.

"Do as I Do" is a new training method based on dogs' social cognitive skills, particularly on their imitative ability. With this training technique, dogs can learn new behaviours from observing and imitating their owners.
