Conditioning Humans

woo!

My Human was exasperating today...twice! She put her shoes on twice today and then did not go outside and open up the gate to the bigger field. We've worked with her on her training and her behavior, but she still isn't being consistent.

Let's face it, humans just aren't as smart as dogs. We are watching a dogumentary called Dog Genius. The human narrator was discussing that chimps can't figure out what humans mean when they point at something and that dogs can figure it out 90% of the time. We all know that the 10% time that dogs can't figure it out are when humans are giving mixed signals.

The human narrator referred to humans as dogs' research subjects. This is certainly true. We study humans whenever they are present.

I would like to see this dogumentary so I can show it to my mum. She needs all the help she can get.

Tubey, there is something for you on my blog (at least there will be in about 12 hours).

We are going to be sure our Mom watches that documentary too - she needs lots more training.

Or perhaps we can figure it out 100% of the time but only choose to do something about it 90%. Hmm...

So why was she putting on her shoes, then? Practicing her shoelace knots, maybe?
