Episode 212:⁣ Using Tone Avoidance in Dog Training⁣

⁣Your Working Dog Radio hosts, Eric @vanessk9 & Ted @ted_summers, sit down with East Hartford Police K9 Handler and CPWDA Trainer and Vice President, Todd Mona.⁣

This is our first episode from the Hold the Line K9 Conference Series ⁣and the gents chat with a repeat guest, Todd Mona. Mona has been a police officer with East Hartford PD in Connecticut for almost two decades, and has been a K9 handler since 2006.⁣

In this conversation, your hosts and Mona discuss the use of tone avoidance in dog training. They delve into how tone can be used as a negative marker, followed by a stim, to teach dogs to leave things alone, and how it can be used to create a verbal “out” command. They also discuss the use of vibration as a silent “out” command and recall cue. The conversation emphasizes the importance of clear communication and the reduction of high-level stimulation in dog training.⁣
You’ll want to take notes during this episode, that’s for sure! So be sure to listen to it on!
