371: PupPod – Learning System for Dogs!

The Dog Show #371 – April 6, 2016
Guest: Erick Eidus, founder of PupPod: Learning System for Dogs. PupPod is designed with the dog’s experience as its priority. PupPod teaches dogs using the same basics as clicker training: operant and classical conditioning, and progresses to make itself harder as the game becomes easier for the dog. With the rise of technology in modern society, it really was only a matter of time before we created opportunities for dogs to interact directly with technology. With this development, comes a responsibility to ensure that these opportunities provide constructive interaction in a way that engages the dog’s brain and ultimately calms/grounds them. You’re going to be impressed by this one!
