High Five – Be Encouraging!

“Correction does much, but encouragement does more.” -Goethe

I am a dog lover and married to a part-time dog trainer. Mei Mei, our Belgian Malinois, contributed her paw to the Paws-itivity cause!

I’ve always been a carrot vs. the stick kind of person. Positive reinforcement allows people to feel confident and accepted. And those attributes provide them the opportunity to do even better in learning, working or in their personal lives. E-Learning and adult training have even started using a badging system to teach. The badge system helps with goal setting, recall, and is used as an ongoing incentive.

Positive reinforcement not only works on humans, you favorite furry friend can benefit from some positive encouragement as well. Renowned dog trainer, Victoria Stillwell, has a training site called Positively and she explains the positive reinforcement principal!
