Victoria on BBC Radio 4: Similarities in Raising Kids & Training Dogs

Victoria was a guest on Michael Rosen's BBC Radio 4 program, Word of Mouth, on January 3, 2011.  On the show, she discusses the similarities in the ways children are raised and the way we train dogs.  While pointing out that kids are definitely not dogs and vice versa, and that they should not be treated as such, Victoria outlines why positive reinforcement is an effective tool whose core principles can be used in both child rearing and dog training.

    Agree! I have always used positive reinenforcement with my children and any dog I raised/had. Yes, there is a difference but rewarding good behavior is a teaching tool that has worked for me. I like to catch them doing well and praising them for that! Victoria Stilwell you ROCK!
