I don't watch television, but this was very interesting. I did psychology at varsity, and even all those years ago we used this same reinforced/ conditioned reinforced training method to shape and build up strings of behaviours in pigeons and rats. I later married and had children dot dot dot Ha!
I was so impressed with the patience and hard work of the team!Might be something other countries can use to publicise their skills and the dogs needing forever homes.
