You can train your dog by rewarding bad behavior

Here’s what Donna Hill of
says about this method of training:

Lucy developed an annoying habit of jumping up at the food dish as I carried it to the back door. I wanted to get rid of it but for the long- est time I was afraid to put it on stimulus control (on cue) as I worried she might do it more often instead of less often (add it to her repertoire).

I decided it couldn’t get much worse and so tried putting the unwanted jumping behavior on cue. These are the steps we did and the outcome. I had a pleasant surprise by the end of training.

    This really does work! My dog, Virgil, used to bark at me every time I was eating food he wanted. So, I decided to teach him to speak. Every time he barked, I’d say “speak” and reward him. I didn’t realize at the time it was a training technique…I just figured if he was barking I may as well teach him the speak command. Well, very quickly he learned to speak when I told him to, and – just like in this video – he stopped doing it unless he was told! Great video!
