So We talked about positive reinforcement and negative reinforcement, positive reinforcement is giving something pleasant and desirable for a desired response,negative reinforcement is removing something unpleasant for a desired response. An example of negative reinforcement would be scolding or hitting for an undesired action. It would be better to wait it out, then treat the dog with positive reinforcement when it performs the behavior you are looking for. Another thing you can do is redirect the undesired behavior. For example, if the dog is digging, call it away and throw a ball for it to catch. Dogs love that, so they will forget about the digging, because they would rather catch a ball. Make the desired actions fun. That’s the key (it works with kids too).
