For example, if your dog howls annoyingly, don’t react at all. This response, or lack of response, is known as the LRS, or “least reinforcing scenario.” Offer praise or treats only when the dog is quiet. (You may have to be persistent. I did this for 15 years with my beagle, and now he has totally stopped howling, partly because, as noted in a previous blog, he is dead. So stick to it!) When an animal does something you like, such as administering acupuncture correctly, give him a reward: a pat on the head, a romp in the yard, a Lexus.(Martha Beck)
