Episode 59 - Puppies!!!

Though Rob may prefer to hit PAWS when it comes to talking about canines, Jackie and Diana have a howling good time on this week's episode all about dog behavior and behavior analysis.  Wondering how functional analysis methodology can be used to treat dog challenging behavior? Or how shelter workers can actually be taught to train dogs on the cheap? Curious if Rob writes little stories about the research articles he reads? We answer all three of these tough questions in this week's episode.  We're such RUFF-ians.

Episode 12 - Research Grab Bag

This week we take out three articles from our research grab bag, three articles related only by our enjoyment of the subject matter.  Diana teaches us all the merits of good yoga poses, Rob chides everyone for all of their filler responses, and Jackie uses bark collars to keep the hosts behaving.  Plus, Rob breaks our brand new mixer and we all reiterate Skinner's proposition that applied behavior analysis is the cat's pajamas.  That "cat's pajamas" part might be a paraphrase.
