Do As I Do!

Dogs can learn to imitate their owner's behaviour. The Do as I do method is just that: We teach your dog the DAID protocol and after that it is easy to teach your dog new behaviours.

How DAID works? Your dog observes you perform certain behaviour and then repeats the same thing you just showed. Then you give the behaviour a cue and that’s it!

According to research, behaviours learned by imitating are
- faster to learn
- easier to generalize
- tolerates disturbances

In this course it is useful that the dog already knows some behaviours that are possible to imitate and that are under cue. In addition, it’s good if the dog already knows how to lie quite still or sit and wait.
